John Wray won’t officially take office until mid January, but he’s beginning his work planning for his freshman term as a member of the state House of Representatives with an introductory meeting of the Republican legislative caucus on Aug. 14-15.
“I’ll go to the that and learn a little bit about how the Republican Party will work as a cohesive unit,” Wray said in an interview with The Ennis Daily News Monday morning.
Wray will take over for one of the longest tenured and most powerful members of the house, retiring state Rep. Jim Pitts. As a result, Wray has tapped Pitts for some insight into how to serve his district.
“Texas is so diverse and big … there are a number of house members who work together but they all have their constituency and have to serve them,” Wray said.
