Rep. Darby Assigned Key Committee Seats

San Angelo's Representative Drew Darby received three committee assignments in the Texas House of Representatives - 83rd Legislative Session,

Speaker Appointment:
Higher Education
House Energy Caucus
Darby's selection for Budget and Higher Education place him squarely in the position to advocate for Angelo State University, Howard College, area healthcare providers, area public schools and the San Angelo State Park.  San Angelo is lucky to have representation on such key committees.

So far Darby is out front on the issues regarding energy, water and transportation.
Redistricting may garner Darby added political capital.  That could give him the kind influence of San Angelo once had with Representative Rob Junell.  How will Rep. Drew Darby use it?  Hopefully to address local and citizen concerns.
