Rep. Williams Joins Fox 7 Austin in StudioDuring the August recess I sat down with Austin's Fox 7 to talk about what I am working on in Washington
Please consider signing up for my email newsletter – a recap of recent events including: my work in committee, floor speeches, op-eds, and items I think my constituents should be aware of. It’s my way of keeping those who I represent in Texas updated on what I am doing for them in Washington.
Williams Honors Fallen Officer Ahrens“Burleson resident, Lorne Ahrens was one of the five officers who so courageously made the ultimate sacrifice. I am honored to have been able to say he hailed from Texas’ 25th congressional district. At six foot five, 300 pounds, Officer Ahrens has been described as, ‘a big guy with an even bigger heart.’ His colleagues said he always had a smile on his face. He was a loving and devoted husband and father. Officer Ahrens often volunteered at his children’s schools. He was known to be a jokester, a friend, and a true cop. The day before his death, it was reported that Officer Ahrens bought dinner for a homeless man and his dog. This is who he was. This is who we lost. A semi-pro football player, Officer Lorne Ahrens began as a dispatcher at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and joined the Dallas police force in 2002, eventually becoming a senior corporal. There are no words to express the sadness felt by the entire Burleson community. I send my prayers to his wife Katrina and their family. I am encouraged by the outpouring of support Officer Ahrens’ family has received, and I know it will continue in our community. May the Lord's strength give their hearts and souls peace and comfort.”
