State Representative Brooks Landgraf showcased this year’s District Christmas ornament at the Ector County ISD Board meeting Tuesday evening. The ornament was decorated by Jacob Garza, a student at Burleson Elementary School, and will be displayed at the State Capitol throughout the Christmas season.
Jacob Garza painted the ornament with pictures of a pump jack and a beautiful sunset. Garza’s ornament was selected out of dozens of student-decorated ornaments to celebrate Texas House District 81 this Christmas Season.
The ornament will hang on the 25-foot Christmas tree in the House Chamber at the Texas Capitol in Austin. It will be on display from December 2, 2016 – January 2, 2017.
Each year, State Representative Brooks Landgraf is given one Christmas ornament to be decorated in the district and to represent the Permian Basin on the State Capitol’s Christmas tree.
