AUSTIN, TEXAS – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin), who represents Burleson, Texas in the U.S. Congress, today announced he has been chosen by The Burleson Lions Club to be the Fourth of July Grand Marshall.
“I am honored to take on the role as Grand Marshal this Independence Day,” said Williams. “Burleson is a town close to my heart, and I am looking forward to celebrating our nation’s birthday with my family, friends and fellow patriots.”
The ground remained soggy Monday morning and puddle and mud encounters proved impossible to avoid. Yet the overnight downpour gave way to a cool, breeze-filled morning at Cleburne Memorial Cemetery as about 90 gathered to mark Memorial Day.
To many, the holiday brings summer’s kick off and family fun, several program speakers noted, all of which is good. More importantly, all said, is the opportunity the day brings to pause and remember those who secured our freedoms to enjoy such activities.

AUSTIN, TEXAS – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin), who represents Fort Hood in the U.S. Congress, had three of his requests included in the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations bill to address the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) patient backlog, project cost overruns and the toll-free crisis hotline after calls went unanswered.
This week, President Obama is going around the country to re-hash some of the themes from his State of the Union. I have a better idea: how about he start apologizing for the last seven years?
I’ve decided to help the president by highlighting some of the lowlights that he should address. I’ve also taken the liberty of assisting the president’s speech writers by putting this in a speech format for him:
As we approach the new year, it is a great time to reflect on 2015. While the past year has brought much frustration and disappointment from Washington, it is the Texas spirit of resolve, determination and willingness to confront challenges head-on that give me hope for the future.
November marked six years since the unspeakable tragedy that occurred at Fort Hood. This year we were finally able to get the Obama Administration to admit the events that transpired on that fateful day were an act of terrorism and not workplace violence.
AUSTIN, TEXAS – Congressman Roger Williams (R-Texas) on Wednesday spoke on the steps of the Texas Capitol to honor our nation’s veterans:
"America is truly an exceptional nation, and that is because of our veterans who have preserved our freedom. Anytime or anywhere this freedom is challenged our military answers the call.
“On this Veterans Day we honor the elite group of men and women who made sacrifices to ensure we could continue our normal way of life.”
