The big day is almost here!

Swearing-In Ceremony

Tuesday, January 10, 2023 is the first day of the 88th session of the Texas Legislature. At 12:00 pm, Kronda Thimesch will be sworn in as your representative for House District 65.

If you are joining us in Austin on Tuesday, January 10, please make Kronda's state office (Extension 1.216) your first stop in the Capitol -- to sign the guest book and get information about the viewing room and day's events.

Getting moved into our Capitol office... new faces & spaces!

Kronda and her team have been in Austin since Thursday, moving into the HD-65 office in the state Capitol building. Many hands make light work as we fill bookshelves, hang artwork, and unpack boxes to get ready to receive constituents!

Jefferson experiments with the best way to wear his new badge... 😂

What an honor... ❤️

My family joined me today, on the last day before the session begins, to show their support as I prepare for the important work ahead. I am humbled to be taking this role on, and can't wait to represent the people of Denton County.

  • The Texas Legislature meets for 140 days in odd-numbered years, and always convenes on the second Tuesday of January.
  • A Regular Legislative Session cannot last longer than 140 days, and thus usually ends the last week of May. This year, the last day of the session (known as Sine Die) is May 29, which is also Memorial Day.
