KERMIT — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) attended the meeting of the board of trustees of Kermit ISD via conference call on Wednesday to discuss the upcoming session of the Texas Legislature and answer questions about the state's response to recent crises.
“I’m always excited to hear from KISD to learn more about how to improve educational opportunities for our students,” Landgraf said. “Kermit and Winkler County provide so much to Texas and I want to make sure Texas returns the favor, especially these days.”
Landgraf, who represents Winkler County in the Texas House of Representatives, met with the school board to offer any assistance the city may need from the state.
“The next generation of West Texans deserve the best education possible, regardless of what happens with COVID-19,” Landgraf continued. “I look forward to helping Dr. Lopez and the KISD board do whatever it takes to be ready for the next school year."
Landgraf is attending this and other local government meetings across the Permian Basin to keep locals informed about actions to combat the coronavirus and prepare for the next session of the Texas Legislature, which convenes at the Texas Capitol in January 2021.
