ODESSA — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) encourages Odessans to take part in the upcoming hearing of the House Select Committee on Mass Violence Prevention and Community Safety, set to take place in Odessa on November 7, 2019.
The House Select Committee on Mass Violence Prevention and Community Safety hearing will be conducted in the Joe Zant Community Room at Odessa College beginning at 9:00 AM on Thursday, November 7, 2019. The public is invited to attend and provide testimony regarding the impact of the mass shooting that occurred in Odessa on August 31, 2019.
"I'm calling on Odessans to once again show up and make your voices heard," Landgraf said. "This is your opportunity to speak directly to elected officials from across the state to share your thoughts and concerns about solutions to prevent acts of mass violence in Texas without having to make the six-hour drive to Austin."
"I want to thank Chairman Darby, a fellow West Texan, for choosing to hold a hearing in Odessa," Landgraf continued. "This is a necessary step as our community continues to heal in the aftermath of the August 31 attack. In addition to myself and Chairman Darby, there are eleven other members of the committee who will be there to listen to everyone who wants to testify."
