Texans for Accountable Government (TAG) is a trans-partisan Political Action Committee headquartered in Central Texas. TAG was formed with the ambition of reigning in the intrusive and expanding reach of government which threatens to invade every facet of our lives. Our ambition is to put the reins of government back into the hands of individual American citizens; allowing us to once again run our own lives.
TAG focuses on issues at the local, county, and state level. We believe in the principle of subsidiary; that power should be vested in the nearest locality. Our local representatives are much more accountable to us than are those over a thousand miles away in the District of Columbia.
We are dedicated to safe guarding individual liberty, protecting personal privacy and property rights, election integrity, safe water, and electing representatives, not bureaucrats, to office!
Heather Fazio first got involved politically when she began exploring the truth behind the Federal Reserve banking system and so-called War on Terror. She heard about Texans for Accountable Government during the “Stop Vampire Cops” campaign in early 2009 and was compelled to take action locally. Since then, she has assumed a leadership position within TAG first as a Steering Committee member then as Political Coordinator of the 2011 Texas Legislative session and now as Executive Director.
Trey Reginelli is a CPA and holds an accounting degree from the University of Houston. A native Texan, Trey grew up with the yearning for liberty that inspired the American and Texas Revolutions. He joined TAG because he shares its goal of making a free and prosperous Texas where individuals are free to live their lives as they choose.
Chuck Young founded TAG out of his frustration with reactionary party politics; he felt that field work in the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign had shown that there was a hidden constituency, fed up with the status quo, that was eager for real “Hope and Change”. TAG’s founding vision was of an enabling, bottom-up meritocracy, not a stifling top-down bureaucracy — one that thought locally and thus acted globally. TAG was to be (and is!) a tribe of whup-ass activists — the keyword being ACTIVE — operating within a network of tribes of all political suasions.
Chuck put his money and his time where his head was; he was TAG’s Treasurer, Tech Dude, lead Organizer, point Lobbyist, and Communications Director in its infancy. He’s proudest of getting a veto on SB 1440. Nowadays he trades forex and futures, works on software for people sometimes, and keeps telling himself he’s gonna finish writing that book someday…
