Hurricane Harvey Update


Hurricane Harvey Update 


Over the past few weeks Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc upon our entire community. However, so many people have come together, put differences aside, and helped their neighbor clean up what has been left. Thank you all for your uplifting spirit, hard work and patience. Should there be anything that we can do for you, please don't hesitate to contact Representative Faircloth or his office.

A special note of THANKS   


Representative Faircloth has spent the last two weeks helping the community pick up the pieces. After suffering personal loss in the storm, Rep. Faircloth has worked tirelessly with those coordinating relief efforts, first responders and people working to get Chambers and Galveston County back up and running. He worked with the Galveston Chamber of Commerce to help Galveston businesses get back on their feet. He has spent countless hours working to helping neighbors in need. This included collecting supplies, volunteering at shelters, stripping sheetrock, hauling away flooded items for family and friends, coordinating state and local services.  




Representative Faircloth would like to take this time to thank all the first responders during Hurricane Harvey for their hard work and dedication to their community. We will rebuild Chambers and Galveston Counties and be stronger than ever before. Representative Faircloth is proud to serve this district and is passionate about standing with people who have been affected every step of the way.
