TML LEGISLATOR-OF-THE-MONTH FOR JANUARY 2011

Representative Burt Solomons

Representative Burt Solomons is the TML Legislator-of-the-Month for January 2011.  Representative Solomons represents House District 65, which includes Carrollton and Lewisville.

First elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1994, Representative Solomons is currently serving in his eighth term in office.  During his tenure, he has served as chairman of the powerful House State Affairs Committee.

Representative Solomons understands municipal issues.  Prior to his election to the Texas House of Representatives, Chairman Solomons has served as a municipal judge and as president of the Texas Municipal Courts Association.  This session, he has filed H.J.R. 56, which would prohibit the legislature from passing along unfunded mandates to units of local government, including cities.

We hope that city leaders across Texas, and particularly those in Representative Solomons’ district, will express their appreciation to this outstanding leader.
