Mayor, council visit with representatives at state Capitol


Members discussed priorities with Sen. Pete Flores and Rep. Brad Buckley

KILLEEN, Texas (March 1, 2023) – Mayor Debbie Nash-King and several council members met with political leaders at the capitol building in Austin on Feb. 27 to discuss local priorities, as the new legislative session has begun.

“This was an opportunity to sit face to face with the lawmakers whose decisions directly impact our citizens, and let them know our priorities,” Mayor Nash-King said. “It’s also a prime opportunity to hear from our representatives about what they need from us and what more we can do to help them succeed.”

Mayor Nash-King, along with Mayor Pro tem Ken Wilkerson and council members, Jose Segarra, Nina Cobb, Michael Boyd and Riakos Adams joined Rep. Brad Buckley and Sen. Pete Flores for a discussion on goals and ideas.

Topics included Proposition A, a local November election, the Veterans Tax Exemption, and a discussion on the committees Rep. Buckley and Sen. Flores are a part of this session.

“We need your input and feedback,” Sen. Flores said. “We need to know that you think—good or bad. We’re here to serve. If we don’t know, we can’t address it.”

Mayor Nash-King requested both legislators hold more forums in Killeen, and both lawmakers agreed that was a good idea. 

Both the local and state leaders will continue to communicate and share needs, desires, ideas and suggestions going forward.
