CPA Sen. Tommy Williams (R-The Woodlands) Resigns from the State Senate

Sen. Williams announced earlier in the month that he would resign his current State Senate seat. Last Friday, Oct. 25th, Williams submitted his resignation to Governor Perry. It will now be up to Perry to call a special election to fill the remaining Williams term for Senate District 4.

Williams, a CPA and a member of TSCPA, served in the House for three terms before being elected to the Senate in 2002. He has been a leader in the Senate and a supporter of CPAs and CPA legislative initiatives. He sponsored legislation improving the Accountancy Act during three different sessions. He will be missed by CPAs. Williams ended his career while serving as the Senate Finance Committee chairman.

    Actually, Sen. Williams was elected to the Texas Senate in 2002 – not 2009. Typo?
