MENARD COUNTY – PECAN SPRING RANCH, TEXAS (August 17, 2021) – Conservative Texans for Energy Innovation (CTEI) announced today the promotion of Samuel Davis to the position of State Field Director for the Texas Chapter of the Land & Liberty Coalition (TXLLC).
The Texas chapter, a project of CTEI, is part of the larger Land & Liberty Coalition, a network of grassroots organizations created to partner with landowners, community leaders, economic development groups, clean energy businesses and elected officials.
Jackson Keith, Director of the Land & Liberty Coalition said, “Samuel’s leadership since the launch of the organization has been outstanding and his dedication and hard work has been instrumental to its success. I am confident that his strong work ethic and passion for these issues will continue to be a tremendous asset going forward.”
Davis had previously been serving as the organization’s field representative since inception in late 2020. With his roots in a West Texas ranching family, Davis is a 7th generation Texan. His relatives emigrated from Germany in 1880 to settle Pecan Spring Ranch, his family’s centennial ranch located in McCulloch and Menard Counties. In 2017, Davis and his family partnered with a wind energy developer to provide ranch acreage in Concho County for part of the Cactus Flats Wind Farm, one of the state’s premier wind energy developments.
Davis said, “I’m fortunate to be able to combine my job with my love of rural Texas and my passion for renewable energy. I get to wake up every day and help Texas landowners organize as effective advocates and empower local communities to take on a greater role in their energy future.”
Matt Welch, state director of CTEI, added “large utility-scale renewable development projects are increasingly common in rural Texas, and local residents are experiencing new economic development opportunities, local job growth, and additional tax revenues for schools, roads, and emergency services. Samuel’s energy and enthusiasm will help more communities across the state experience these same benefits.”
