On the road again

By WILL HURD

My title is Representative, and I have the honor of representing the 23rd Congressional District of Texas. During my first term in office in 2015 and 2016, I hosted over 400 public meetings, called over 630,000 households for live telephone town hall meetings, responded to over 50,000 constituent letters, and put over 75,000 miles on my car criss-crossing the district. From our five district offices (in 2017, we added a sixth), Team Hurd hosted regular office hours and helped over 1,000 constituents solve complicated cases with federal agencies.

Each weekend before heading back to Washington to represent you, I try to meet with as many folks as I can. Whether it’s hosting a public meeting, speaking with community leaders, or dropping in to a local business to visit with the owner and his or her customers, I am often in multiple towns over a weekend before flying back to our Capitol at the beginning of the week. Why is this so important? I’m able to stand tall as your Representative, because I’ve gotten to know what issues are most important to you and our community through these kinds of interactions.
