Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar Receives Bob Bullock Award for Outstanding Public Stewardship

(AUSTIN) Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar received the 22nd annual Bob Bullock Award for Outstanding Public Stewardship at the Texas Digital Government Summit today at the Austin Club.

The Bob Bullock Award is presented each year to a Texas state executive or elected official for outstanding leadership, innovation and a career that demonstrates continual dedication to serving Texas citizens. Bob Bullock was the Texas comptroller from 1975 to 1991. He also served two terms as lieutenant governor.

“I’m truly honored to receive this award, which recognizes the efforts we at the Comptroller’s office have made to put our own love for Texas into action,” Hegar said. “Our approach to every program and every new initiative is to ask, ‘Is it good for Texas? What would make it work even better for the people of this state?’ The answers to these questions guide our work to put Texans first with every decision we make.”

Hegar was elected as the 36th Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts in November 2014. Upon taking office, Hegar reorganized the agency for quicker and more effective decision-making and reduced its administrative footprint by working with the Legislature to eliminate inefficient programs and transfer others that didn’t fit core missions. Additionally, the comptroller recommended that the Legislature repeal eight taxes, six of which were administered by the Comptroller’s office.  READ MORE...https://comptroller.texas.gov/about/media-center/news/2019/190529-award.php
