BORGER, TX - State Senator Kel Seliger of Amarillo has held 267 town hall meetings across voting District 31.
He says this lets voters know what's been going on in the legislature, and lets them voice their opinions on governing issues.
He is currently on a town hall meeting tour through the counties that make up District 31
Seliger serves on a number of legislative committees tackling different parts of the Texas budget and government.
But his passion is education.
The former mayor of Amarillo made that known at Borger City Hall today by asking students some tough questions.
Seliger brought up for debate recent controversial topics.
He said it's important they talk about them now because soon the students will be the ones in charge.
"They need to be thinking about medical marijuana and gay marriage," said Seliger. "Those are decisions and issues they're going to deal with long after they're out of Borger, Sanford-Fritch and West Texas High Schools."
Other topics constituents asked about included gun control, eminent domain, school administration and how to give West Texas a bigger voice in state legislature.
