State Sen. Tommy Williams welcomes Chambers County constituents to Austin

AUSTIN -- State Sen. Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands, will welcome the residents of Chambers County to Austin on Monday, February 14, and Tuesday, February 15, along with Sen. Kyle Janek, R-Houston, and Rep. Craig Eiland, D-Galveston.

"Everyone in the capitol looks forward to Chambers County Day," Williams said. "Chambers County residents bring the same amount of enthusiasm to the capitol as they do the Texas Gatorfest and the Texas Rice Festival."

Chambers County Day, a long-standing tradition, will give constituents the chance to see their state government at work. The day will include special recognition of county elected officials including County Judge Jimmy Sylvia, County Commissioner Precinct 1 Mark Huddleston, County Commissioner Precinct 2 Judy Edmonds, County Commissioners Precinct 3 Buddy Irby and County Commissioner Precinct 4 Bill Wallace.

On Tuesday, the Chambers County delegation will be honored on both the House and Senate floors as well as recognized with a Senate Resolution to make the day official. The day will conclude with a Chambers County Day celebration from 5 to 9 p.m. at Saengerrunde Hall and Scholz Garten, located on San Jacinto Boulevard near the 16th street intersection.

First elected in 1996 to the Texas House of Representatives, Tommy Williams was later elected to the Senate in 2002 and re-elected in 2004. He represents Senate District 4 that includes all or portions of Montgomery, Harris, Liberty, Chambers, Jefferson and Orange counties.
