Several Ennis residents made the trip to Austin last week to visit with state government officials about community concerns regarding many issues including state funding for school districts.

City of Ennis officials as well as members of the 2010-11 Ennis Chamber of Commerce Leadership class spent time at the state capitol visiting the galleries of the House of Representatives and the Senate before sitting down to discuss the financial forecast for education in Texas.

The group had a question and answer session with Ray Glynn, deputy commissioner for school district leadership and educator quality for the Texas Education Agency, as well as representatives from Tx DOT and Texas Speaker Joe Straus’s office.
