Co-founded by seasoned political professionals with over a decade of Capitol Hill and campaign experience, GOPtools.net focuses on providing Republican organizations and campaigns with battle tested, web-based tools that work to make them more efficient and more effective.
Like most companies, we began to fill a need: to advance our Party into the new era of web-based communications. Whether it is allowing a candidate's campaign to focus on the important instead of the urgent with our CAMPAIGN INTRANET or helping a Republican club grow by effectively reaching members of their community with our GOP Club Website, our goal is to advance our Party.
At GOPtools.net, we have a vision of ensuring that we can provide our Party, at the county and club level, with the tools that they need to succeed in this new era of internet based communication. We have invested in the research and development for their online communities (formerly know as websites) so that our local Republican clubs do not have to; and by doing so, we save them the thousands of dollars they would normally have to invest in building and maintaining an online community. At GOPtools.net, the Party comes first!
A writer and history buff, Trey graduated near the top of his class with a degree in history from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, in 1993. After years of local activism in Northeast Texas, Trey went to work on Capitol Hill in 1998 as a legislative staffer for U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry (TX-13). In 2001, he was hired by Senator Phil Gramm and served as his aide for agricultural and rural affairs. In 2002 Trey returned to Thornberry's staff and added technology issues to his portfolio, with a focus on rural development.
Trey left Capitol Hill in 2005 to work on opportunities with the History Channel, where he has been featured in documentaries about the Civil War. He is the creator of Historyplayer.com, a web-zine with an edgy focus on historical interpretation. Focused on bringing state-of-the-art technology to each brick of the Republican Party, no matter its size, Trey thinks of nothing but how their values will be preserved and advanced in the future. He has conceptualized the CLUB SITE.
Jack began his career with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as a fundraiser and event coordinator. After receiving his degree in mass communications, public relations and advertising from West Texas A&M University, he joined Congressman Mac Thornberry’s (TX-13) staff. While with Thornberry, Jack held multiple positions including press secretary, webmaster and systems administrator. After volunteering on a state senate campaign, Jack caught what his mentor called “the bug.” After three years working on Capitol Hill and in Texas, Jack left Thornberry’s office to work on campaigns across Texas. He’s been at it ever since. A couple of these campaigns include those of Congressman Jeb Hensarling and State Senator Kel Seliger.
Fundraiser, systems administrator, press secretary, campaign manager, webmaster, legislative assistant: If one thing is for certain, it is that Jack has held many titles during his career. With this experience came the knowledge that built our CAMPAIGN INTRANET.
