Some of our team joined the Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce for Chamber day in Washington DC. We had a full day of legislators coming to us, letting us know what is happening this session. It was so exciting. We heard from the following elected officials and learned so much.
Filemon Vela, 34th District of Texas, John H. Hill Homeland Security, Christine Zaroni Homeland Security (not sure about the spelling can’t find her on the internet), Kevin McCarthy, California 23rd District, Kevin O’Neill Lobbyist, Amy – Baylor Research and Illuminate, John Cornyn Senator for Texas, Mike Conaway 11th District of Texas, Liz Cheney, Congresswoman for Wyoming, Sam Graves, Congressman for Missouri, Steve Scalise, Congressman for Louisiana, Kevin Brady, 8th District of Texas, Bill Flores, 17th District of Texas and Ted Cruz, Senator for Texas.
The second day we went and visited legislators on Capital Hill and was able to tell them about the things that concern us here in the Brazos Valley.
A big thank you to Bill Flores for setting this wonderful event up. Thank you to all the people in the B/CS Chamber for putting together our legislative plan and working on all things we experienced on the trip.
