Joseph "Tex" Dozier
Joseph “Tex” Dozier is a pioneering general consultant and professional “fixer” for corporate, electoral, and non-profit clients. Nicknamed the “Winston Wolf of Public Affairs,” Tex has over a decade of professional experience spearheading campaigns, projects, and initiatives ranging in scale from local, statewide, and international. Red Alert Politics named Tex to its 2015 "30 Under 30" that recognizes young-professional leaders on the Right. In 2016, industry peers recognized Tex as a political/public affairs all-star for making "significant professional contributions around the world towards achieving noteworthy success in the political and public affairs fields."
Tex gained his initial experience in politics during high school as a member of Young America’s Foundation, as Senator John Cornyn’s first page, and as a field coordinator for Kinky Friedman’s gubernatorial campaign — at age 16, he spearheaded grassroots and volunteer efforts in North Texas to get Friedman on the ballot (170,000 voters petitioned) and have the most successful independent campaign for governor since Sam Houston.
During college, Tex interned for Congresswoman Kay Granger, contributed to the Sam Adams Alliance, and was a Stevanovich Fellow at the Cato Institute. At the University of Chicago, he hosted a weekly public affairs radio show, led the College Republicans, and was part of the University Community Service Center’s leadership training corps — learning community organizing and grassroots tactics from the Left that he believes are sadly all too often ignored by the Right. His college activism reestablished the UChicago CRs in Barack Obama’s backyard and achieved record-breaking fundraising, increased membership, and recognition by the university as the most successful and effective student group on-campus.
Collegiate honors include speaking at the nation’s first tea party rally (after Santelli’s call-to-action at the Chicago Merc), receiving the Phillips Foundation Ronald Reagan Scholarship, being a State Policy Network’s Generation Liberty Fellowship, and earning university awards for leadership and for being a “bridge builder.” While a college student, Tex also assisted in raising +$750k for conservative causes and campaigns.
At 19, Tex began consulting for Coca-Cola after organizing the first successful counter-campaign against Leftist trial-lawyer Ray Rogers — Tex had consolidated a local worker union, pro-free market groups, and students into a coalition. He has specialized in free enterprise and grasstops/grassroots advocacy for corporate and non-profit clients since then. He has a passion for the sharing economy and enjoys assisting disruptive tech companies that are providing positive innovation for consumers and are challenging the statist status-quo of politicians and special interests.
After moving back to the Lone Star State, Tex trained college students and developed campus groups as a Leadership Institute field representative. Always having an entrepreneurial itch, Tex then founded JTD Strategies to continue to empower grassroots politicos, to provide innovative public affairs and relations advising, and to advance liberty from small towns to international capitals.
JTD Strategies’ first cycle culminated in 24 winning local campaigns in multiple states, numerous underdog public affairs “wins,” and a “Pollie” award (political consulting Oscar) for public affairs from the American Association of Political Consultants. JTD Strategies has continued to grow since then and now has associated asset brands for telemarketing (automated and live) and for writing (copy, speech, and ghost writing). JTD Strategies is faithful to its “global reach, local focus” slogan and has participated in election monitoring and has advised on projects/campaigns in Eastern Europe and in Asia (e.g., Sri Lanka). During the 2016 election cycle, Tex successfully oversaw critical EDO (election day operations) for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Tex has trained numerous activists and politicos, and he continually shares his knowledge and experiences through speeches and workshops to civic and political organizations.
Tex has a B.A. in political science and a graduate certificate in professional editing from the University of Chicago. He is currently completing a certificate in advanced international affairs from Texas A&M University.
Outside of work, Joseph “Tex” Dozier is a member of Leadership Fort Worth, serves on the Fort Worth Library Foundation's annual Cigar Smoker committee, and is active in the North Texas Community Foundation's WORTH initiative. He has never lost his political activist roots and serves as an elected precinct chairman on the Tarrant County GOP Executive Committee. He is an amateur yet avid cigar connoisseur and whiskey sommelier and enjoys rugby, scuba diving, and adventuring/traveling with his wife — the female Indiana Jones.
