Tomorrow, several hundred people will become American citizens at a naturalization ceremony here in Austin.
It’ll be my honor to speak at that ceremony.
I’m excited. It’s great to be a part of such a significant moment for so many folks.
It’s also a powerful reminder of how much we have to be thankful for. We get to call this country, this state and this region home. So for a whole lot of folks, we look like lottery winners.
I’m thankful to be an American, a Texan, and a part of this Central Texas community. I’m thankful for my loving family and friends. And I’m thankful – deeply grateful – for all of you who’ve given me this chance to serve. I love being your State Senator, and I’m honored that you’ve elected me to do this job.
