Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Governor Clements' Inauguration

Jan 16, 2019

Today we remember the 40th anniversary of Bill Clements' historic inauguration as the 42nd Governor of Texas. On January 16, 1979, Bill Clements took the oath of office and assumed governorship over the State of Texas. During the course of his two nonconsecutive terms as governor, the former Deputy Secretary of Defense and oil company executive successfully pared down the state’s budget, improved public schools, diversified the economy, and made strides in improving Texas’ relations with Mexico. On this special anniversary, we honor his enduring legacy of leadership and public service to our state and our nation.
