Abbott presents seven top priorities in State of State from San Marcos

Thank you for preparing San Marcos for the freeze

After watching the damage done to Austin neighborhoods by the ice storms of last week and the number of homes who have lost power for five or more days, I want to express sincere appreciation and gratitude to our Mayor Jane Hughson, the City Council and the McCoy Tree Surgeons of Oklahoma. Their actions over the last few years have significantly reduced the number of power outages from falling limbs or trees in our city.

She makes mean comments about them to me and questions the amount of time we spend with them.
