Gov. Perry Orders Flags at Half-Staff In Memory of Rep. Joe Moreno
Gov. Rick Perry today ordered flags to be flown at half-staff at state buildings in memory of State Rep. Joe Moreno
"Anita and I are saddened by the loss of a respected member of the Legislature who served his constituents with great dedication and integrity, Rep. Joe Moreno," Perry said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Joe's family and friends during this difficult time. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him."
Moreno, D-Houston, was first elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1998 and was serving his fourth term. Moreno was killed early this morning in a car accident just outside of LaGrange.
Perry's order also calls for flags to be flown at half-staff on the day of his burial once the family has made those plans.
