Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement thanking first responders and Texans who are helping their fellow neighbors:
“All across Texas, neighbors are helping neighbors. That is who we are, and what our great state is all about. We are here for each other, and we’re grateful to our brave first responders and everyone who is answering the call to help.
“Texans of all stripes, all colors, gender identities, and immigration statuses are helping those in need. We thank God there are people ready and willing to lend a helping hand.
“Hurricane Harvey is not done with us. At this moment Texans remain in peril. Rain continues to pour down, flood levels are rising, and more families await rescue. The days ahead will be tough, but they will be met with the same Texas courage and kindness that we have always lived by.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with those who’ve lost loved ones and those whose lives have been affected by the storm. All Texans are with you in your hour of need, and we will stand together.”
