Water is the lifeblood of every community. Republican Charles Perry â€” who has served in the Texas House of Representatives (District 83) since 2010 â€” declared water to be his cornerstone issue during his stop in Nolan County Tuesday.
"Water is the common theme in the 51 counties (which comprise Senate District 28)," Perry said during an interview with the Reporter. "Sweetwater is a great example. Oak Creek Reservoir is dry."
