Members of the House of Representatives assume the responsibility of forming the laws and policies for the Great State of Texas. “I look forward to working with my county judges and all elected officials of District 35, to ensure their voices are heard at the Capitol.”
During the historic opening day ceremony, the Texas House of Representatives elected State Rep. Joe Straus from San Antonio as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Speaker Straus is the first newly elected speaker in six years. State Rep. Gonzalez Toureilles said “I am looking forward to working with Speaker Straus and know that he will be a benefit to my constituents in District 35. I was proud to have served on his escort committee introducing him as our new Speaker.”
To continue her dedication to District 35, State Rep. Toureilles filed eight bills before she was officially sworn in on Tuesday.
