Texas is in Andrew Murr's blood

Andrew Murr - an 8th generation Texan, descendant of a pioneering family of one of our brave defenders of the Alamo, and grandson of former Governor Coke R. Stevenson – Representative Murr comes from a long line of Texans committed to making our state a better place to live for future generations. Read more about State Representative Andrew Murr...

While in Kerrville yesterday, I stopped by the Dietert Center, Kerrville with my son, Coke, to visit with Meals on Wheels volunteers and ride along on a delivery route. Meals on Wheels volunteers do an awesome job serving elderly individuals a hot meal which allows many of them to stay in their home. I enjoyed seeing service in action. To learn more about how valuable volunteerism can be, visit www.dietertcenter.org.

Last week, members of the Texas House Committee on Natural Resources joined me in Menard for a tour of the area led by Caroline Runge, Consulting Manager for the Menard Underground Water Conservation District. The tour and the discussion centered around the Upper San Saba River and the history behind the irrigation canal (affectionally referred to locally as “the ditch”) through the City of Menard, which can be traced back to the late-1700’s (before Texas was a nation or a state). The committee members also visited Fort McKavett State Historic Site. The tour preceded a committee hearing in Brady, Texas where the committee heard from experts, landowners and local officials about the San Saba River, the springs which feed it, and surface and ground water in the area. Thank you to Chairman Lyle Larson and all committee members and staff for allowing such an important hearing to occur in the Hill Country.

I was in Austin today attending the Texas Indigent Defense Commission’s (TIDC) Grants and Reporting Committee meeting as a committee member. The TIDC is a division of the Office of Court Administration (OCA) which, among other things, oversees reimbursing counties across the state for indigent defense expenses. The state mandates that a court must appoint legal counsel for criminal defendants to those who can’t afford it and the TIDC reviews those reimbursement applications and administers grants to counties relating to this constitutional purpose. I enjoy serving as a member of the TIDC and working to support our counties and our court system.
