Congressman Canseco's Statement on his Visits Throughout the 23rd District of Texas

Apr 30, 2012


23rd District of Texas - Congressman Francisco “Quico” Canseco (TX-23), an advocate for fiscal responsibility in the U.S. House of Representatives, traveled throughout the district this past weekend to meet with constituents and discuss issues impacting the district:  
“This past weekend I had the pleasure of hosting various Town Halls and Open Office Hours in Fort Hancock, Van Horn, Alpine and Pecos, Texas.  What I heard from many of my constituents was disappointment with the economy, the difficulties facing small business owners and the effect of over-taxation on the day to day lives of those living in the district.  We discussed how policies created in Washington that promote more taxes and a government takeover of health care are not what people in my district want or need.  I explained my efforts to fight against greater taxation, and my support and co-sponsorship of legislation like the Small Business Tax Cut Act, which would provide that much-needed tax relief to small businesses in my district.” 
“I also had the opportunity to meet with local officials, including border patrol agents, to discuss efforts being made to secure our border and keep violence from crossing over into the 23rd District.  It was a great opportunity to learn of challenges faced by the border patrol and see how I could assist them in Congress with their efforts to protect our border.” 
“Events like the Town Halls and Open Office Hours are vital to my job representing the district in Washington.  I appreciate those who came out and voiced their concerns and engaged in discussions about what should be done to put us back on the right path,” concluded Congressman Canseco. 
Town Halls and Open Office Hours are events that give constituents of the 23rd District of Texas opportunities to speak directly to Congressman Canseco about the issues that are important to them.
