Advisory Council Meeting

Austin, TX (04/15/17) —  Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kyle Bie­der­mann recent­ly held an all day advi­so­ry coun­cil meet­ing with con­stituents in Hon­ors Hall at the New Braun­fels Cham­ber of Com­merce. The rep­re­sen­ta­tive estab­lished  advi­so­ry coun­cils last fall to bet­ter under­stand the needs and the issues fac­ing house dis­trict 73. There are a total of 15 dif­fer­ent coun­cils to include edu­ca­tion, trans­porta­tion, prop­er­ty rights, deer and elk, faith and fam­i­ly, and more.

“It was encour­ag­ing to see so many peo­ple come talk about issues they care about. Peo­ple drove from all over the dis­trict to attend. In fact, we even had peo­ple dri­ve all the way from Fred­er­icks­burg for the ear­li­est coun­cil meet­ing at eight in the morn­ing!” said Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Biedermann. 

Hun­dreds of con­stituents came to meet with Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bie­der­mann and his staff dur­ing the day. The meet­ings were struc­tured so that indi­vid­u­als could express their con­cerns and inform the rep­re­sen­ta­tive about issues that  need to be addressed  on a state or local lev­el. The rep­re­sen­ta­tive and his staff also updat­ed the atten­dees with infor­ma­tion on leg­is­la­tion Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bie­der­mann has filed, and can­did­ly dis­cussed what’s hap­pened so far this leg­isla­tive session.
