AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott today continued his tour of Harvey affected cities, traveling to five impacted communities along the Texas coast. During his visit, the Governor, along with Commission to Rebuild Texas Commissioner John Sharp, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, and Commissioner George P. Bush met with local leaders in these areas including Mayors, Legislators, County Judges, and other officials. During the meetings, the Governor discussed ways that the state can assist in the ongoing recovery efforts and their continued commitment to helping Texans rebuild.

“To see the way these communities have been impacted is truly heartbreaking, but Texans remain resolute and united in their recovery,” said Governor Abbott. “We know that many victims are still facing seemingly impossible challenges, but I am confident that Texas will emerge from this disaster stronger than ever before. I thank these local leaders for all they are doing to help their cities and I want them to rest assured that we are here to help as long as it takes.”

The Governor today visited the cities of Sugar Land, Wharton, Bay City, Angleton, and Dickinson. Today’s locations were the second stops in a three day, 16 city tour of the Hurricane impacted areas of the Texas Gulf Coast.
