by: Rep. Straus, Joe

AUSTIN—Texas House Speaker Joe Straus (San Antonio) today issued the following statement on the passing of Texas State Representative Ken Legler (Pasadena).

“The Texas House has lost a loyal friend and dedicated servant today. Representative Legler was a respected colleague and passionate advocate for his constituents. He was also a successful small businessman who served his community and state well before he was elected to the Legislature. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Barbara and their three children during this difficult time.”
