(Tarrant County)- Thursday evening, former Navy SEAL Team Leader Clint Bruce formally endorsed Wendy Burgess for Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector.
Bruce said, “As a Naval Academy graduate who was drafted by the NFL and later chose to return to the Navy as a SEAL Team Leader, I understand the meaning of teamwork and sacrifice for something greater than yourself. That's why I'm asking for your support for Wendy Burgess for Tax Assessor-Collector."
Bruce, one of the most decorated Navy athletes in recent history, was captain of the football team and MVP during his tenure at the Naval Academy. After being drafted by the NFL and playing with both the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints, Bruce gave up his career in the NFL to serve his country as a Navy SEAL.
In response to the endorsement, Burgess said, “I’m humbled to have the support of a decorated American hero. Clint Bruce is a true patriot, and it is truly an honor to have earned his confidence and backing as I run for this important position.”
The Republican Primary Election for Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector will take place on Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
