Rep.Donna Howard to Host Series of Town Hall Meetings

Local Lawmaker to Offer Wrap-Up of Legislative Session and Gather Community Feedback

(AUSTIN) — Today, State Representative Donna Howard announced that she will host a series of town hall meetings across the community in the month of October.

"To many observers of the Texas Legislature, the 85th Regular Session 'coulda been worse,'" Rep. Howard said, "but then we had a Special Session which was just plain terrible. However, despite spending far too much time on divisive issues and fabricated problems, lawmakers still made some notable advances in areas such as foster care and mental health. These town hall meetings will provide an opportunity for House District 48 constituents to learn more about how recent legislative actions—or inaction—on the state budget, education, property taxes, and other topics will affect them and impact our community."

The first meeting is slated for Wednesday, October 4th at Small Middle School from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. As with the others, attendees should feel free to come and go at their convenience.

“I hope that district residents will use these informal gatherings as an opportunity to ask questions, exchange information, and share their best ideas for meeting the challenges we face here in Travis County and throughout Texas,” Howard said.
