Gov. Greg Abbott visited League City during the holidays to meet with local officials from hurricane-impacted areas of Texas and receive an update on the ongoing recovery.

During his visit, the governor presented League City Mayor Pat Hallisey and other local leaders with funds for debris removal in their communities. The governor also thanked local officials for their hard work and dedication to helping Texans recover, and he reaffirmed the state’s unwavering commitment to doing everything possible to help the victims of the storm.

“As I continue to travel across the region, there is no doubt that the impacts of the storm are still very prevalent, but so is the resiliency of the Texas spirit,” Governor Abbott said. “The funds presented today represent a small part of the state’s commitment to make sure local communities receive the help they need. I thank all local, state and federal officials involved in the ongoing recovery for their commitment to helping those in need, and I want all the victims of this storm to know that we will be here for as long as it takes.”

The League City visit was part of a two-day, three-city trip to hurricane-impacted areas of Texas. In attendance at the meeting were officials from League City, Dickinson, Friendswood, La Marque, Fort Bend County, Montgomery County, Brazoria County and Baytown.
