Ancira and Wynn to Lead TML Advocacy Efforts 


The Texas Municipal League (TML) announced today that Jesse Ancira and Monty Wynn will lead TML’s advocacy efforts.  Ancira will serve the League as Senior Legislative Advisor and Wynn will assume the role of Director of Grassroots and Legislative Services.


Jesse Ancira most recently served as Chief of Staff to House Speaker Joe Straus, as well as Mayor for the City of Taylor for four of his six years on Taylor’s city council.  Ancira is also a former special agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigations and previously worked for the Comptroller of Public Accounts as Associate Deputy Comptroller and General Counsel.


Monty Wynn has worked in and around state government for nearly 30 years.  He will lead the League’s legislative efforts and work to better engage local officials in the legislative process.  Wynn has been with TML for 13 years after working for two Comptrollers of Public Accounts as  legislative liaison.  He is also a former Committee Director for the House Public Education Committee and has worked in the Texas Senate.


“Jesse's and Monty’s experience at both the state and local levels will provide valuable guidance to the League in the new year.  City officials should know that they are well served in our advocacy efforts at our state capitol,” said Bennett Sandlin, TML Executive Director.
