Six community members showed up on Monday afternoon, June 7, for U.S. Rep. August Pfluger‘s town hall-style meeting, so the group pulled their chairs into a semi-circle and had a casual, hour-long chat with the representative.

Pfluger represents Texas’ Congressional District 11, which encompasses 29 counties, including the lower half of Stephens County and the counties of Andrews, Brown, Callahan, Coke, Coleman, Comanche, Concho, Dawson, Eastland, Ector, Erath, Glasscock, Hood, Irion, Kimble, Llano, Martin, Mason, McCulloch, Menard, Midland, Mills, Mitchell, Palo Pinto, Runnels, San Saba, Sterling and Tom Green. The northern half of Stephens County is included in District 19, which is represented by Jodey Arrington.

Some of the topics that were discussed included the southern border, issues facing rural America, especially rural Texas, such as broadband access and the oil and gas industry.

Pfluger, who lives in San Angelo, said he was making his way across the district, meeting with citizens along the way.
