Trent Ashby Heading for Austin Early

Lufkin School Board President Trent Ashby won’t “officially” become the State Representative from House District 57 until he takes the oath of office in January, when the next legislative session convenes.  But Ashby’s not waiting until then to learn his new job.  He’s “chompin’ at the bit”, and ready to hit the ground running.

With the primary behind him and no Democrat on the ballot against him in the November  election, Ashby says he plans to spend time in Austin over the summer.  He’ll be meeting with other House members and committee chairmen, in the hope of getting assigned to committees where he can do the most good for east Texas.

Angelina County Judge Wes Suiter says having someone like Ashby — with his education and business background — representing deep east Texas will be a big plus.  “He knows the region. He knows the needs of Lufkin and Angelina County … water rights, land rights, economic development — the myriad of things that we go to Austin for every other year.”
