The following is a statement from Sen. Watson regarding the bombings in Austin:
The bombings over the past few weeks have left us all frightened and shaken. They shattered our sense of safety in our community and caused a terrible loss of life and pain for many Austin families. That loss will always be with us. But we’ll heal together and provide love and support to those who have been directly affected. They are our family and their loss is profound. For them, this ordeal isn’t over.
We owe a huge thanks to all the public safety professionals working this case as well as everyone supporting them. That includes folks from Austin police, fire and EMS and the local, state and federal partners that worked with them. I know we all deeply appreciate their tireless efforts.
