Rep. Brooks Landgraf sworn in for third term

AUSTIN -- One of the State Representatives for West Texas has been sworn in for the third time.

Rep. Brooks Landgraf took the oath of office on Tuesday ahead of the 86th Texas Legislative Session.

"It's an honor to have the opportunity to serve the people of Andrews, Ector, Ward, and Winkler counties," Landgraf said. "As I prepared for the next legislative session I traveled all over West Texas to hear directly from the people I represent and the issues they want me to address."

Brooks was re-elected in the November elections beating Democratic candidate Armando Gamboa with 75% of the vote.

On January 3 his office announced that he had refiled "Monica's Law" to prevent domestic violence in Texas.

"There's a lot of work to do in a short period of time, but I'm hitting the ground running on the first day to continue to make West Texas the best place to live, raise a family, and grow a business," Landgraf said.
