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.
Roger attended Texas Christian University where he was an All-Southwest Conference baseball player and named to TCU’s All-Decade Team for the 1960s.
Upon graduating, Roger was drafted by the Atlanta Braves and played in their farm system for many years before deciding to begin a new career as a small business owner and the head baseball coach at TCU.
Roger was appointed by Governor Rick Perry to serve as Texas Secretary of State where he helped usher in unprecedented economic growth to the state. He also served as the state’s Chief Liaison for the Texas Border and Mexican Affairs.
In 2012, Roger was elected to Congress. Honored to represent Fort Hood, he was appointed to the National Defense Authorization Conference Committee for Fiscal Year 2018, which ultimately led to the largest pay raise for our troops in eight years. It also paved the way for increased funding for improvements to critical infrastructure at Fort Hood.
In Congress, Roger has been the voice of small business owners across America, and his real world business experience has made him an effective leader and legislator. Last Congress, he authored a tax reform package called Jumpstart America, which served as a framework for the historic Tax Reform package that modernized America’s outdated tax code from a true business perspective.
In the 116th Congress, Roger serves on both the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Financial Institutions and the Subcommittee on National Security, International Development and Monetary Policy, within the Financial Services Committee.
His love of sports has followed Congressman Williams to the Capitol where he is the chair of the bipartisan Congressional Baseball Caucus and the College Football Caucus. He is also the coach and manager of the Republican Congressional Baseball Team.
