AUSTIN – Drew Springer was sworn in today to represent the people of Senate District 30. Joined by his family, including his wife, Lydia, his children and grandson. Springer took the oath of office from Governor Greg Abbott during a ceremony at the Governor’s Mansion on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2021.
Springer defeated his opponent handily to win a special election to replace state Senator Pat Fallon, who was elected to Congress in November.
First elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 2012, Springer served the people of House District 68, which included Floyd County, for eight years with distinction. As a Christian, pro-life, conservative Springer has been at the forefront of protecting and preserving traditional Texas values, something he will carry on in the Texas Senate representing North Texans in Senate District 30.
“As your State Senator, I will continue advancing the conservative priorities of our district, such as reducing property taxes, protecting unborn Texans, and standing up for our law enforcement and first responders who keep our communities safe,” Springer said.
The 87th Texas Legislature will convene on Tuesday, January 12, 2021, in Austin. Top issues before the legislature will include public safety, ensuring continued economic growth, addressing responses to the pandemic, continued protection of our Constitutional Rights, and property tax reform.
