ACG In Austin: Susan Combs, Texas Comptroller
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Speaker(s):Susan Combs, Texas Comptroller
As Comptroller, Susan is the state’s chief financial officer. She manages the state’s treasury operations, monitors Texas’ fiscal health, guides legislative decision makers by estimating state revenues and ensures state taxes are collected fairly and efficiently to fund vital programs and services for the people of Texas.
Combs first served as an Assistant District Attorney in Dallas County where she prosecuted juvenile delinquents and handled child abuse cases. Her next job in public service was four years in the Texas Legislature, where she authored the state’s landmark private property rights legislation.
Texans elected Susan in back-to-back elections in 1998 and 2002 to serve as the state’s first woman Agriculture Commissioner. She re-engineered the Texas Department of Agriculture for greater efficiency and took on more responsibility to boost economic development, ignite revitalization, promote Texas products through the GO TEXAN marketing campaign and helped Texas schoolchildren eat healthier by launching one of the nation’s strongest school nutrition policies.
Combs is a fourth generation Texan with a West Texas ranch that has been in her family for 130 years. She is a graduate of Vassar College and the University of Texas School of Law. Married for 37 years, she is the proud mother of three sons.
