Gainesville, TX-- 22 Town Halls, in 22 counties, in 22 hours that was Texas State Representative Drew Springer's schedule Monday, October 30, 2017. Rep. Springer visited all 22 counties traveling 800 miles throughout HD 68, stopping at Shamrock, Wellington, Childress, Turkey, Floydada, Ralls, Post, Rotan, Jayton, Aspermont, Guthrie, Dickens, Matador, Paducah, Quanah, Vernon, Haskell, Throckmorton, Graham, Jacksboro, Bowie, and, finally, Muenster.
The purpose of this town hall series was to find a fun way to visit each of the counties in HD 68 and be available for an exchange of issues and ideas in face to face conversations with the citizens of HD 68. Topics discussed were as vast and varied as the 25,000 square miles of the district itself, ranging from controlling fever ticks to school bus drivers. Just as various were the meetings locations, which included restaurants, high schools, hotels and community rooms.
Rep. Springer had already discussed the accomplishments of the 85th Texas Legislature in previous town halls throughout HD 68. Some of the goals the legislature was able to meet, he said, "were a conservative budget, multiple pro-life bills, expansion of Second Amendment rights and protection for rural schools and retired teachers."
All told Rep. Springer has held 56 town hall meetings, driving, approximately 5,000 miles since the end of the 85th regular legislative session.
