Congressman Will Hurd

US Rep. Will Hurd to visit Fabens, Clint, Horizon on Friday

San Antonio, Texas – U.S. Representative Will Hurd has a full day of events planned in the El Paso area on Friday.

He’ll kick off the morning at Fabens High School, meeting with staff and administrators and speaking to students about his role and responsibilities in Congress.

He will join Senator John Cornyn and Congressman Beto O’Rourke at the El Paso Chamber of Commerce “State of the Congress 2016” for a lunch-time address discussing how congressional action impacts El Paso and surrounding communities.

His next stop is a roundtable discussion about cross border trade enhancement with Cornyn, O’Rourke and Mayor Oscar Leeser, hosted by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The roundtable will not be open to the press, but  will be followed by a press conference at Paso Del Norte Bridge.

Hurd will head to Horizon High School afterwards to help the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger organization distribute bags of food and backpacks for students.

That evening, Hurd is excited to travel to Clint High School to perform the coin toss before the Lions face the Chaparral Lobos.
