ATPE thanks all our members who braved the cold, wet weather to attend our Lobby Day events in Austin earlier this week. We also sincerely appreciate our guest speakers, Rev. Charles Foster Johnson of Pastors for Texas Children and Retired District Judge John Dietz. Attendees are reminded to watch for our follow-up email and encouraged to complete the online evaluation of the event to help us continue to offer excellent programs like this one in the future.
