REPRESENTATIVE R.D. "BOBBY" GUERRA SWORN INTO OFFICE
Legislative priorities for District 41 include good paying jobs, quality healthcare and adequate funding for schools and highways
AUSTIN – State Representative R.D. "Bobby" Guerra (McAllen) was sworn in at noon today for his second term as the Texas House of Representatives convened its 84th Legislative Session.
“It’s such an honor and privilege to continue serving my community as State Representative for District 41,” stated Rep. Guerra. “Having my beautiful family and supporters present with me on the house floor made the swearing of oath ceremony even more special.”
Rep. Guerra along with the other 149 State Representatives of Texas will be in session for 140 days and will consider a wide variety of topics.
“Over the next months, some of the discussions my colleagues and I will be having concern public education, healthcare, training and security, as well as transportation and the state’s growing economy and infrastructure needs. Rapid expansion, in addition to the lack of sufficient road and highways require our focus to be placed on adequate funding. We need to develop a plan now so we can secure the future for Texans,” Guerra said.
Rep. Guerra looks forward to working together with Speaker of the House Joe Straus and colleagues of the State Legislature. “I plan on working together as one delegation for our mission during the 84th Session is clear—to make Texas an even greater place to live and work. When I’m on the floor, I’ll be thinking about my constituents and vote my district,” stated Rep. Guerra.
Rep. Guerra currently serves on the House Committees on Public Health and Transportation. Committee assignments for the 84th Session will be announced mid- February when Speaker Straus makes the final selections.
His Austin office is located at E2.818 in the Capitol extension. Constituents and visitors are encouraged to stop by to meet with the Representative and his staff; Chief of Staff, Anne Drescher and Legislative Director, Aisa Showery.
