ODESSA — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) announced today that he no longer supports Speaker Dennis Bonnen (R-Angleton).
"Texans deserve honesty and transparency from their elected officials, from city council to governor," Landgraf said. "It is with this high standard in mind that I officially withdraw my support for Speaker Bonnen. I cannot in good conscience continue to support him as speaker of the Texas House when it is clear that he lied to the members of this body and the people of Texas. Many of his words and actions during the months since the successful legislative session do not reflect the values of the West Texans I serve."
