ODESSA — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) attended the virtual Odessa City Council meeting on Tuesday to discuss the local and statewide response to the COVID-19 pandemic, transportation projects in the city, and answer questions from the mayor and council members.
"I had a great discussion with Mayor Turner and the council members," Landgraf said. "City leaders are threading the needle, doing what needs to be done to keep people safe and healthy, while also balancing the unique economic considerations of our region. I wanted to communicate to them that I’m here to help them serve our fellow Odessans in any way possible."
Landgraf, who represents Ector County in the Texas House of Representatives, met with the city council to offer any assistance the city may need from the state.
"I make it a priority to meet regularly with Odessa city officials," Landgraf continued. "A challenging time like this is when it’s most important for us to work together for the people we serve."
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.
