The Hill Report: Week of July 3 - 7, 2017
Today marks the one year anniversary of the tragic events that shook our city and put our police officers in the direct line of fire. When theshooter opened fire, they didn’t run away or cower. They did what they were trained to do and because of that they saved countless innocent lives. As we remember these fallen officers, I would also like to take a moment to recognize all of the men and women who selflessly serve and protect our community day in and day.
It shouldn’t take a horrific act to come to our officers sides however, I feel because of this tragedy we as a community and a city have grown stronger together. All of us have to rally behind the men and women who gear up every single day, preparing for the worst of the worst to ensure that our children, our families, and our communities are safe from harm. It is my sincere hope that we never have to face another day like July 7, 2016, but if we do I know one thing is certain, we will face it together and we will prevail.
Meetings in Northe Texas
Veterans Resource Center
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting with representatives of theVeterans Resource Center and other veterans organizations around Dallas, as well as many in the leadership at the Veterans Affairs North Texas Health Care System, including the Interim Director. As Dallas County is home to one of the largest populations of veterans in thecountry, it is vital that we take essential steps to continue improving veterans access to education, veterans groups, health care, and other benefits these heroes deserve. I am excited to continue this conversation and thankful for all of those willing to get involved to give back to those who sacrifice so much protecting our homeland.

This week I was delighted to celebrate the official grand opening of Toyota’s new North American headquarters in Plano. This new campus will create more than 4,000 jobs for hard working North Texans and inject our local economy with nearly $10 billion. Texas has always led by example when it comes to providing businesses with the opportunity to grow and thrive and I am pleased that Toyota is going to be a part of our North Texas community.
