Today, Representative Ina Minjarez and I presented House Resolution 47 on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives, a memorial resolution honoring the life of retired U.S. Marine Master Sergeant Rodney Buentello of San Antonio who served in four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last summer, On June 8, 2016, the Buentello family was visiting Bandera City Park near the Medina River following a recent flood. A teenage woman attempted to walk across the dam spanning the swollen river, in violation of city ordinance, and was swept over the dam and into the hydraulic undertow below. A male teenager jumped in to attempt rescue, but was also caught up in the undertow. Master Sergeant Buentello entered the turbulent waters without hesitation. His efforts saved the two teenagers, but he succumbed to the swollen river that fateful day. Rodney Buentello is a true Texas hero. We are proud of his quick actions and of his many accomplishments.

Monday, I introduced Pastor Jim Barker II of Junction to give the invocation before the Texas House of Representatives. His wife (and Co-Pastor), Laurie joined him, along with their kids and niece, as well Kimble County Sheriff Hilario Cantu and his family. After participating on the Floor of the House Chamber and a tour of the Capitol, we visited and took pictures. MaKlay Simon, my Legislative Assistant and also a resident of Junction, joined us. Thank you, Pastor Jim, for your thoughtful words of prayer.

This week, members of the Texas Midwest Community Network visited the Capitol and met with various House members and Senators. At the conclusion of the group’s visit in Austin, Governor Greg Abbott stopped to visit for a few minutes and pose for some photos. Thank you for all the help and support you provide our rural counties -- keep up the good work!

- A Message from Andrew Murr -

Like all freshman legislators, my first legislative session in the Texas House was very challenging, but in the final analysis it resulted in one victory after another for hard-working Texas families. We passed a fiscally conservative, balanced budget while still adding funding for education, border security, transportation and child protection. We protected the rainy day fund, cut taxes, and had one of the most conservative legislative sessions in memory.

I could have never achieved so much during my first term in the legislature without the wisdom and counsel of my constituents. I look forward to continuing our work together to benefit our district, rural Texas, and the entire state.
