Water and education were the topics of choice during Tuesday’s town hall meeting with Kel Seliger, as the District 31 state senator discussed the results of the recent legislative session and what it could mean for rural West Texas.

Seliger said the necessity of water is something the legislature is paying close attention to, especially in parched West Texas.

“What would be the most devastating thing to lose in Howard County tomorrow?” Seliger said. “A community, industry and school system will not survive without water. It just won’t. We have some problems in West Texas and I’m sure you’re going to hear daily from today’s administration the drought is the fault of George W. Bush. And, if you can do that, I can take credit for the cool weather we’ve had the last few days."
