Abbott Endorses Texas Energy Resources Committee Chairman


November 28, 2017


Texas Governor Greg Abbott is endorsing San Angelo-area District 72 state Representative Drew Darby.

Abbott said Tuesday that Darby has a key place in the 2019 session.

“The next legislative session presents an opportunity to lower Texans’ property taxes, reform our broken school finance system and further protect life,” Abbott said.

Darby is chairman of the state Energy Resources Committee, the Select Committee on State and Federal Power and Responsibility and is a member of the Ways and Means and Redistricting committees.

He’s being challenged in the next election by San Angelo resident Lynette Lucas, who announced her candidacy in August.
