Thank you, TX-11 Heroes
My team and I stayed busy last week calling constituents and local leaders in all 29 counties across the 11th District. In the process, we heard hundreds of heartwarming stories of heroism, generosity, and Texans taking care of each other.
There are thousands of hard-working folks in our district who deserve a heart-felt "Thank You" for working around the clock in painfully cold temperatures to restore power and water and provide emergency services to our communities.
Thank you to the first responders, powerline workers, healthcare workers, farmers & ranchers, energy workers, water workers, transportation workers, and citizens who have been working tirelessly around the clock in painfully-cold temperatures to help their fellow Texans during this winter storm.
Each of our City, County, and State officials deserve monster-credit for the work they did as our voice and advocate at every level. It never ceases to amaze me how selfless and kind the people in this community are, even when faced with an emergency.
I’d also like to thank the many citizens who stepped up to the plate last week to help their neighbors and community members during this turbulent moment. There were harrowing stories of folks opening their homes, taking to the streets for rescue efforts, clearing the roads of ice and snow, and much more.
I am incredibly proud of this District—it never ceases to amaze me how kind, decent, and selfless the people of the 11th District are are.
Our state still faces an uphill climb repairing monster water leaks, assessing infrastructure damage, investigating what happened, and ensuring we have proper safeguards in place to prevent it from ever happening again. This crisis has really tested us, but we have shown just how resilient we are.
