Commentary attended an event last night for State Rep. Carol Alvarado.  It was hosted by retired and active H-Town Firefighters.  I saw a lot of my old friends from HFD including Foster, Fong, Rick, Ralph and Joe who was on the command staff back in the 1990s. It was interesting to hear their takes on current H-Town politics.  I respect their takes.

The event was held at Johnny’s who lives in SD 6.  It was a very good event.

This morning I welcomed newly elected House members at the 86th #txlege freshmen orientation. We had the chance to discuss our top priorities for next session, including accomplishing meaningful school finance reform for TX kids. Looking forward to a productive session!

Commentary has said it before. School finance reform is the mother of all public policy issues in Texas. Since like the late 1960s. We will see.

Nothing new to report from The Yard.
