Texas House District 20


The vote not taken

Over the last eight months, I have received more communication from the district about the Speaker of the House than any other topic. Some think he should be replaced; some think he is the only one with any sense. Spending the 140 days of the regular session immersed in the culture and process of the legislature has given me a slightly different perspective on the issue than I had going in, one I feel deserves sharing.

The problem with singling out one member of the legislature, one leadership team, or one Speaker of the House as being the problem is that it assumes that the problem lies with the person and not with the power itself.


Pancake breakfast to say 'Thanks for Everything!' on Feb. 13

An event dubbed the “Thank you for Everything Pancake Breakfast!” has been scheduled for 8 a.m.-10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13.

Political candidates in every race from Texas Senate District 24 and Texas House District 20 to local races have been invited to meet and greet constituents at the event sponsored by Burnet County Emergency Service District #6 and the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department (MFAVFD).

“This is a free breakfast, just to say thank you,” said Nancy Hansen, president of the board of directors of ESD #6. “We hope it can be an annual event.”
