PLANO, TX – State Senator Van Taylor announced July mobile office hours on Thursday, July 21st in McKinney and Plano.

“Government should serve the people, not the other way around,” stated Taylor. “Unfortunately, all too often interactions with government agencies leave constituents confused and frustrated. Accordingly, I have made helping constituents with state agency or entity issues, concerns, or questions a priority. I work for you, and as such my office will organize mobile office hours in every community within our district. I encourage anyone having issue with a state agency to visit with our office and see how we can help.”
