Defending Democracy in Texas Honoree

Randall Buck Wood

The League of Women Voters of Texas is thrilled to honor Randall Buck Wood for his career defending democracy in Texas. Buck Wood is a nationally celebrated expert on school finance, ethics, and election law. Buck served as Director of the Elections Division of the Texas Office of the Secretary of State from 1969 to 1972. After leaving the SOS’s Office, he became the Executive Director of Common Cause, a public interest lobby group chartered to maintain fairness in the governmental process. While serving Common Cause, Mr. Wood championed legislation dealing with open meetings, open records and numerous election laws that govern the operation of public entities today. A founding partner of Ray & Wood, Buck serves as the General Counsel to the Equity Center, an association of over 500 below-average-wealth school districts committed to improving public school funding in Texas. This is sure to be a memorable evening between Mr. Wood's considerable knowledge and reputation as an entertainer and story teller.
