As you may notice, my newsletter has gotten an update. While it looks a little bit different, it still contains the same important information to keep you and your family informed about what’s going on in HD 127, in Austin, and around the state.
This week, I was in Austin meeting with the House Committee on Public Education to discuss mental health and school safety. Both hearings lasted several hours, and we heard from various experts in the fields of: law enforcement, mental health, school administration, technology, and teaching. We additionally heard from parents and students of the school community, and their stories were emotional and inspiring.
My office will soon begin compiling the recommendations and information gathered from both of the hearings into a report that will be sent to Speaker Joe Straus detailing the committee’s findings. We will be sure that you have a copy of this report as well, so be sure to subscribe to the newsletter to get it delivered straight to your inbox.
Next week, we celebrate Independence Day! Accordingly, both of my offices will be closed Wednesday through Friday. My staff will have limited access to email, so if you need immediate assistance, I encourage you to email them through the links at the bottom of the newsletter.
Have a wonderful weekend.
