HOUSTON – Dr. Tom Oliverson, conservative Republican candidate for State Representative in District 130, announced his campaign’s fundraising totals for the upcoming campaign finance report filing. The campaign will show strong contribution numbers with over $120,000 raised during the reporting period and almost $215,000 cash on hand.
“I am honored and thankful for the support and trust that people have placed in me,” Dr. Oliverson stated. “Our campaign is off to a great start with these strong fundraising numbers. When elected, I promise to uphold our conservative values that make Texas the greatest state in the country to live, work, and raise a family.”
In addition to these fundraising numbers, the campaign has already gathered several prominent endorsements from grassroots leaders and business groups in the area, such as Texans for Lawsuit Reform, the American Society of Anesthesiologists PAC, the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists PAC, the Texas College of Emergency Physicians PAC, the TEXPAC (Texas Medical Association PAC), US Anesthesia Partners of Texas PAC, and Justin Ray, Mayor of the City of Jersey Village.
Oliverson, a managing partner with US Anesthesia Partners, officially announced his campaign earlier this month. His group practice, US Anesthesia Partners, is the largest anesthesia group in Texas with over 1,100 anesthesia providers. He is recognized as an expert in office-based anesthesia and consults with doctors and dentists throughout the state in order to make office surgery safer for patients. His work includes the passage of SB 978 in the 2013 legislative session. This bill, designed by Dr. Oliverson, closed a dangerous loophole in Texas Medical Board regulation of physicians performing anesthesia in office-based settings. In recognition of his efforts to fight for conservative values, Dr. Oliverson and his wife were appointed to Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick’s Inaugural Committee.
