It is my honor to represent 41 counties across the Texas panhandle and north Texas. While the day to day battling and gridlock in Washington make it easy to get discouraged, I find comfort and strength in the everyday reminders of what I'm fighting to preserve. One of the requirements of the job you have entrusted me with is spending much of my time in Washington, but there are few places in the world I’d rather be than back home on the ranch in Donley county. When I came across this beautiful video highlighting images captured by famed photographer, Wyman Meinzer, I wanted to share it with you as it is an incredible depiction of what makes this part of the country so special and a reminder of the beautiful area and people I work for each day. I hope you enjoy it as much as Sally and I did.
