Senator Robert Nichols (R-Jacksonville) recently met with local superintendents from Liberty County. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss education issues in preparation for the 86th Legislature which convenes in January.

“The Legislature faces many challenges this session, and we cannot make good decisions unless we are listening closely to those we represent,” said Nichols. “Education is and always will be one of the most important issues we face as a state.”

Before each legislative session, Nichols meets with each of the school district superintendents in Senate District 3 to listen to their priorities and discuss issues facing the local education community.

“I am honored to be hosting the meeting with Senator Nichols and area superintendents,” said Hull-Daisetta ISD Superintendent Mary Huckabay, host of the meeting. “As always, Senator Nichols is a friend of public education, and we appreciate the opportunity to  share our concerns with him as we move toward the legislative session.”

Senate District 3, which includes over 100 school districts throughout 19 counties, encompasses the greater part of East Texas and Montgomery County.

“These meetings help me to understand how decisions in Austin impact local schools,” stated Nichols. “I appreciate the opportunity to meet with superintendents and discuss how we can continue improving our education system. Our combined goal is to ensure children have the educational tools they need to be successful.”
