AUSTIN – Former State Rep. Drew Springer was sworn in to represent the people of Senate District 30.
Joined by his wife Lydia, children and grandson, Springer took the oath of office from Governor Greg Abbott during a ceremony at the Governor’s Mansion on Tuesday, Jan. 6. Springer defeated his opponent handily to win a special election to replace state Senator Pat Fallon, who was elected to Congress in November, according to a release from Springer’s office.
Springer was first elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 2012. He served the people of House District 68, which included Childress, Collingsworth, Cooke, Cottle, Crosby, Dickens, Fisher, Floyd, Garza, Hall, Hardeman, Haskell, Jack, Kent, King, Montague, Motley, Stonewall, Throckmorton, Wheeler, Wilbarger and Young counties for eight years.
As a Christian, pro-life conservative, Springer has been at the forefront of protecting and preserving traditional Texas values, the release stated. He will carry this on in the Texas Senate representing North Texans in Senate District 30, which includes Archer, Clay, Collin (part), Cooke, Denton (part), Erath, Grayson, Jack, Montague, Palo Pinto, Parker, Wichita, Wise and Young counties.
“As your State Senator, I will continue advancing the conservative priorities of our district, such as reducing property taxes, protecting unborn Texans and standing up for our law enforcement and first responders who keep our communities safe,” Springer said.
The 87th Texas Legislature convened on Tuesday, Jan. 12 in Austin, the release stated. Top issues before the legislature included public safety, ensuring continued economic growth, addressing responses to the pandemic, continued protection of Constitutional Rights and property tax reform.
