BRIEF VISIT – Drew Springer, District 68 state representative, stopped in Olney to hold one of a series of town hall meetings on Tuesday, Aug. 20. Springer met with approximately 10 local residents who listened to a presentation regarding the most recent legislative session and the three ensuing special sessions before asking questions regarding many of the Texas legislature’s actions. Of particular interest was the representative’s stance on the use of $2 billion from the state’s Rainy Day Fund to help communities with water and drought-related projects. That measure will be on the ballot in November.
