About the President
Roger Williams represents the 25th congressional district of Texas which stretches from Tarrant County in the north to Hays County in the south and includes much of the Texas Hill Country and Austin.
Williams attended Texas Christian University where he made All-Southwest Conference for baseball and was named to TCU’s All-Decade Team for the 1960s.
After graduating from college, Williams was drafted by the Atlanta Braves and played in their farm system before an injury prematurely ended his sports career and inspired him to become a small business owner and baseball coach at TCU.
Williams was appointed by Governor Rick Perry to serve as Texas Secretary of State. Williams worked tirelessly to promote economic development, investment and job creation in Texas. He also served as the state’s Chief Liaison for Texas Border and Mexican Affairs.
Williams served as Regional Finance Chairman for Governor Bush in 1994 and 1998 before serving as the North Texas Chairman for the Bush/ Cheney 2000 campaign. He was later appointed by President George W. Bush to chairman of the Republican National Finance Committee’s Eagles Program. Williams served as the North Texas Finance Chairman and National Grassroots Fundraising Chairman for Bush/ Cheney ’04, Inc. and also served as State Finance Chair for John Cornyn for U.S. Senate, Inc.
Outside of legislating, Williams’ love of baseball has followed him to the Capitol. Williams is the chair of the bipartisan Congressional Baseball Caucus and coach of the Republican Congressional Baseball Team.
