Worth Farabee

On Jan. 21, State Representative Lynn Stucky (R-Sanger) was sworn in for a third term in the Texas House of Representatives in a subdued ceremony amid COVID protocols. The ceremony, conducted by Texas Secretary of State Ruth Hughs, kicked off the 140-legislative calendar.

Over the next five months, Dr. Stucky and his colleagues will work on key Constitutional directives—passing a balanced budget and redrawing electoral maps as part of the decennial Census—as well as other key issues related to the state’s response to COVID, expanding health care options as part of a pandemic response, and continuing the fight to bring property tax relief.

“Each session since I began serving in 2017 has brought new challenges as we addressed key topics like reforming the state’s foster care system, and finally succeeding on school finance reform. This session, I will be among the leading members pushing for stronger protections of individual rights and fighting for solutions to issues being faced specifically in House District 64,” Rep. Stucky said after the ceremony.

“I will be releasing my legislative priorities in the coming days, after the details of House Rules and protocols are established.”

Protocols for visiting the state Capitol have changed. The building is open, with free COVID testing available on the North Lawn. Visitors must enter through the north entrance of the Capitol.

Constituents may meet with Representative Stucky in his Capitol office (E2.822, in the underground extension); to arrange an appointment, call 512-463-0582. Constituents also may visit with staff in the District Office at 400 West Oak Street, Suite 106, Denton, Texas 76201 or by calling 940-243-0230.

Lynn Stucky is in his second term as State Representative for Texas House District 64, which includes the cities of Denton, Corinth, Shady Shores, Lake Dallas, Hickory Creek, Krum, portions of Sanger and an area of rural northwest Denton County. He and his wife, Lori, live in rural Denton County.
