State Representative Dwayne Bohac (Houston-District 138) joined Governor Greg Abbott and local leaders at Houston City Hall this week as the Governor announced the availability of new funding for hazard mitigation projects along the Gulf Coast following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

State Representative Dwayne Bohac (District 138-Houston) is pleased to report the City of Houston is opening an additional Neighborhood Restoration Center in northwest Houston this week.

Representative Dwayne Bohac (Houston) is pleased to present the House District 138 ornament that was hung on the Christmas tree in the Texas House Chamber this week. Every year around Christmas, state legislators from all 150 House Districts choose an organization, school or individual to design an ornament for the official Texas House Christmas Tree. The ornaments, representing the culture and personality of each district, are hung throughout the season on the tree. Rep. Bohac selects a different high school in the district each year to submit the official HD 138 ornament.
Governor Greg Abbott today endorsed Dwayne Bohac for re-election as State Representative of House District 138. Representative Bohac has been a staunch ally of Governor Abbott during his term by working to grow the Texas economy. Texans for Greg Abbott released a video this morning highlighting Rep. Bohac’s commitment to limited government and free-market principles.
Tomorrow, State Representative Dwayne Bohac will file for re-election to Texas House District 138. The candidate filing period for the 2018 election begins November 11th and ends December 11th. Bohac will file at the Harris County Republican Party Headquarters. “As a lifelong resident of House District 138, I am very familiar with our district and have always worked to listen to our neighbors and deliver results,” said Bohac. “I am proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish for our district and state, but there’s more to be done. That’s why I will continue to focus on improving local quality of life, keeping our taxes low, improving education, and protecting our shared values.”
Harris County residents and our Gulf Coast neighbors experienced one of the worst flooding disasters in U.S. history when Hurricane Harvey came ashore in August. As we continue working together on the recovery and rebuilding process, I want to make sure area residents are aware of all the resources available to help them through these trying times. Together, we are Houston Strong!

The new DRC will be located at St. John Vianney Church and should be open by Tuesday at the latest. Typically, DRCs are open 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. seven days a week.
