The following is from State Rep. Pete Gallego.
Yesterday, Eagle Pass and parts of southwest Texas were hit hard by terrible storms and a destructive tornado. Today we honored those in the community who have lost their homes and loved ones in the recent storm.
I have a fondness for Eagle Pass. Years ago, the community helped me establish my political career. I was privileged to serve Maverick County for 12 years before redistricting and it is the home of Pete P. Gallego Elementary.
It is always difficult to understand and handle the loss of life especially when it is caused by the sudden andp destructive hand of Mother Nature. With the strong leadership of county and city officials and the helping hand of local and state-wide neighbors, I have no doubt that the community of Eagle Pass will get through this difficult time.
In the wake of this tragedy we are working with the local community, state agencies, elected officials, and the federal government to assist any way we can. Can you help too?
We are grateful for the immediate response of the rescue workers operating well into the night. As hospitals fill up and shelters continue to take in families, other problems and needs may arise. I have offered my full support to Rep. Tracy King and his office who currently represent the area.

Please feel free to contact Senator Carlos Uresti, Representative Tracy King or if you have any further questions please feel free to contact me at my office. Thank you for your support in helping Eagle Pass.
