Texas State Senator Charles Perry and Texas State Representative Mike Lang will be in Breckenridge on Wednesday afternoon as part of a series of town hall forums in the area.

The event will be open to the public and will take place from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, at the Texas State Technical College Technology Center, 415 N Breckenridge Ave. They will hold a similar meeting in Albany later that afternoon.

“Holding town halls are a great way to engage with rural communities as we head into the next legislative session,” Perry said in a news release. “While this state has enjoyed a lot of successes, we still face many challenges and I want to hear directly from the people I represent, so I can voice their concerns down in Austin.”

At the forum, Perry and Lang plan to discuss their legislative agendas, the state budget, and how the legislative process works, as well as answer questions and hear feedback from constituents. The next legislative session will begin on Jan. 8, 2019.

In the general election scheduled for Nov. 6, Lang, of Granbury, is running unopposed for the Texas House of Representatives seat in District 60, which includes Stephens, Eastland, Shackelford, Palo Pinto, Brown, Callahan, Coleman and Hood counties. He is the incumbent and was first elected to the seat in 2016. In March of this year, he won the Republican nomination after garnering more votes than challengers Jim Largent and Gregory Risse. The Texas House of Representatives has elections every two years.

Lang serves on the Criminal Jurisprudence and the Special Purpose Districts committees in the House of Representatives.

Perry, of Lubbock, is the senator for District 28, which includes Stephens County. He was first elected to the seat in a 2014 special election to fill the place vacated by Robert Duncan, who left the office in July 2014. Perry was then reelected in an unopposed race in 2016. His current term ends in 2021. He had previously served in the Texas House of Representatives in District 83.

Perry serves as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Water and Rural Affairs and on the Senate committees on Health and Human Services, Criminal Justice and Transportation.
