Recognized for efforts to expose government waste and promote limited government 

Austin, TX – Today the Texas Chapter of Americans for Prosperity announced that one of its top activists won the prestigious Vernon K. Krieble Foundation’s 2nd annual UNSUNG HERO award. The prize - $25,000 - was awarded Jason Moore from Odessa, TX, for his tireless efforts supporting free enterprise.

AFP-TX state director, Peggy Venable said, "We have worked with many outstanding activists, but Jason Moore (aka Captain Watchdog) has distinguished himself in his tireless work on behalf of the taxpayers and all citizens.  We congratulate him and thank his family for their many sacrifices on behalf of good government and free market policies."

Jason owns his own masonry business in Odessa, Texas. Jason vigilantly attends city, county and school board meetings with his camera in hand to hold public officials accountable on how they are spending tax payer dollars. His latest effort is to educate the public on the large local debt in Texas ($322 billion) and the local bond initiatives on the November ballot. He has testified before the Texas House Public Education Committee on school facilities construction and wasteful spending on what he calls “Taj Mahal-type” buildings.

Jason was given the award today at the State Policy Network meeting on Amelia Island, Florida.
