Flynn Report: Van Texas Tornado Update

May 18th, 2015

Greetings Friends, Constituents and Supporters:

Van Update

Van ISD destruction

Over the weekend, I was able to be in my hometown of Van in order to survey the devastation of the town and meet with volunteers who are assisting the community. Don Dunn, Superintendent of Van ISD, guided Congressman Jeb Hensarling and me though the destruction to the district and we viewed our schools first hand. The devastation is sobering but I continue to have faith that our city of Van will put itself back together and be a stronger community  and more united than ever.

I was so pleased that Congressman Hensarling  called on his colleagues to observe a moment of silence on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives for the City of Van and the victims of the recent tornado and flash flooding.

Honored that members of the Texas House of Representatives stood with me in a moment of silence on the House Floor to honor our city and victims.

We appreciate the Governor, Speaker, Lt. Governor, Commissioner  of Texas Education Agency, as well as Agg Commissioner Sid Miller’s visit to Van to help the state’s commitment to Van and our community. The commitment of major resources and funding to the area will be instrumental in ensuring a full recovery to our  community and we truly appreciate their dedicated involvement.

 

It remains my pleasure and honor to represent all the people of House District 2.  My staff and I continue to welcome your input and your questions. You can contact our office; mailing address: P.O. Box 2910, Austin, TX 78768. Email: District2.Flynn@house.state.tx.us. Phone Number: 512-463-0880
