As occurs each legislative session, class members of Leadership Montague County experienced the opportunity to visit the state capitol in Austin and meet with a variety of elected officials and government agencies.
Since the state legislature is only in session in odd numbered years, both the 2016 and the 2017 classes attended along with current board members.
County Judge Rick Lewis (LMC class of 2013), City of Bowie Mayor Larry Slack, and several spouses and guests also participated in the trip.
Travelling by bus, the group arrived in Austin just in time for lunch at the landmark Scholz Garden. The group then headed to the state capitol building and met with State Representative Drew Springer on local issues coming before the legislature. They also met and had a photo opportunity with Governor Greg Abbott.
