AUSTIN, Texas -

Governor Greg Abbott announced the retirement of senior adviser, Tommy Williams, from the Office of the Governor. 

Williams has been a member of the Office of the Governor since 2017, and served as a trusted confidant on a variety of fiscal matters, including the pivotal school finance and property tax legislation enacted during the 86th Legislative Session.

"I am grateful for the expertise and experience Tommy provided to the Office of the Governor, and appreciate his years of service to the people of Texas," Governor Abbott said. "Tommy was an instrumental figure in the reforms we achieved to our school finance and property tax systems during the 86th Legislative Session, and his leadership and advocacy has ensured a brighter future for the Lone Star State. I congratulate Tommy on his well-deserved retirement, and wish him and Marsha the very best." 

Williams previously served as the Vice-Chancellor for federal and state relations for the Texas A&M System.

Prior to working in the TAMU System, Williams was a Texas State Representative from 1997-2003, and a Texas State Senator from 2003-2013. He graduated with a BA in Accounting from Texas A&M.

His last day with the Office of the Governor will be December 31, 2019.
