GRANDFALLS — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) joined Mayor Jason Copeland the Grandfalls City Council on a conference call on Tuesday to discuss the local and statewide response to the COVID-19 pandemic and answer questions from the mayor and council members
"Mayor Copeland and the rest of the city council are doing an amazing job juggling the public health and economic concerns of reopening safely in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic," Landgraf said. "This is a tough bunch who is doing everything they can for their city, and it motivates me to do whatever I can as their state representative to help Grandfalls be able to bounce back stronger than ever.”
Landgraf, who represents Ward County in the Texas House of Representatives, met with the city council to offer any assistance the community may need from the state.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m inspired by my Ward County friends," Landgraf continued. "There’s a lot of work to be done to get Texas back on track, but if you want to see the right way to do things, come on out to West Texas and we’ll show you how it’s done.”
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.
