The Metroplex Civic & Business Association has invited Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick to speak with local business and civic leaders at an upcoming business luncheon in Dallas.

Patrick will be in Dallas on April 9 to meet with local business leaders and community members to discuss the region’s explosive growth, industry advancements, future opportunities, and what Texas is doing from a state perspective to drive economic growth.

“We are very fortunate to have the Lieutenant Governor come and speak with the organization,” Metroplex Civic & Business Association (MCBA) Founder and CEO Louis Darrouzet told The Dallas Express.

“A lot is happening in DFW, particularly in the Northeast region. So, it’s really exciting for our business leaders and members to sit down and get some face time with the Lieutenant Governor,” Darrouzet said. “A lot can get done in a few-minute conversation, so events like this go a long way.”

According to the MCBA website, the non-profit business organization helps “DFW businesses educate, empower, and mobilize their employee base to step up and make a difference in their communities, ensuring that the region continues to thrive.”

As MCBA’s influence expands, Darrouzet wants to facilitate business and community leaders’ meetings with state leadership about the key issues impacting residents.

“These are the people who lay the groundwork for the state. And in many ways, they are the ones who go to bat for business leaders against over-regulation from the federal government, Darrouzet explained.

Darrouzet calls the upcoming business luncheon a “great opportunity” for local leaders.

“How often do you get to sit down with the lieutenant governor to discuss important issues?” he asked. “The lieutenant governor has a lot on his plate, so we are very excited.”

The Dallas Express reached out to Patrick’s office for a comment on the upcoming event but had not heard back by the time of publishing.
