Michael Quinn Sullivan

Empower Texans
President & CEO

Michael Quinn Sullivan is president and CEO of Empower Texans, and its premier project, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility. The Fort Worth Star Telegram wrote that Sullivan “slays taxpayer dragons in Austin… When the heat is on in Austin, Michael Quinn Sullivan knows how to make it even hotter.” The Dallas Morning News has called him an “agitator, whose name has been invoked — both in earnest and with scorn — in both chambers” of the legislature. On their list of the 25 most influential Texans, Texas Monthly dubbed him “the enforcer” for his ability to motivate grassroots voters. A former newspaper reporter, Capitol Hill staffer, think tank vice president and Eagle Scout, Sullivan and his wife have three children.
