Join us at the University of Texas at Arlington for a light lunch and discussion about the 83rd legislative session with state Rep. Diane Patrick, R-Arlington, and state Sen. Kelly Hancock, R-Fort Worth.

Rep. Diane Patrick was elected to her fourth term in the Texas House in November 2012. Before her election to the House in 2006, Patrick served as a member of the Arlington ISD Board of Trustees for 11 years, including four years as school board president, followed by four years of service as an elected Republican on the State Board of Education. 

Sen. Kelly Hancock was first elected to the Texas Senate in 2012. He served three terms in the Texas House, beginning in 2006. During the 82nd legislative session, he served on the House Insurance Committee, the Environmental Regulation Committee and as vice chairman of the Local and Consent Calendars Committee. Kelly was reappointed chairman of the Republican Caucus Policy Committee, where he led 15 committee members on key policy decisions.

This event will take place at the University of Texas at Arlington. Parking is available in the garage labeled Park South (see map). Park in any space designated for Faculty, Staff and Students. Enter the College Park Center through the north entrance, which is immediately to the left of the box office.
