SENATOR DAVIS ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING INITIAL TABC REPORT ON RAINBOW LOUNGE

Senator Wendy R. Davis today issued the following statement:

"I am pleased with the open and transparent manner in which the TABC has been conducting their investigation of the incident at the Rainbow Lounge. Though the investigation and any subsequent disciplinary action is not yet complete, I trust that the TABC will continue to cooperate in resolving this matter and to hold its officers accountable for any violations of agency policy they may have committed. The many TABC officers who work hard and follow the rules to protect public safety and welfare deserve a swift resolution of this case, so that any damage to the public trust can be repaired as quickly as possible.

Finally, I'd like to thank the citizens of Tarrant County for coming together as a community and working diligently to resolve these issues. This community solidarity, even though it is precipitated by an unfortunate situation, should remind us all of what a great place Tarrant County is to live, work, and to raise a family."
