U.S. Congressman Ted Poe will give a legislative update at the Lake Houston Area Chamber’s upcoming Focus on Federal Government luncheon presented by Insperity on Tuesday, Aug. 22, at 11:30-1 p.m., at Walden Country Club.

Congressman Poe, who represents the second congressional district of Texas, is a leading advocate in Washington for limited government, free markets, low taxes and individual liberty.

Prior to serving in Congress, Poe served for 22 years as a criminal court judge in Houston where he garnered national media attention for his innovative sentences – dubbed “Poetic Justice.” Prior to that, he served for eight years in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, where he became the chief felony prosecutor, never losing a jury trial.

Congressman Poe serves on the House Judiciary Committee as well as the Foreign Affairs Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade. An outspoken advocate on border security, he travels regularly to the southern border to meet directly with local law enforcement and residents. He also often visits troops and around the world. Congressman Poe established the bipartisan Victims’ Rights Caucus (VRC) to advocate on behalf of victims in the nation’s capital. A strong constitutionalist, Congressman Poe stands firmly in the belief of “we the people,” not “we the subjects.”
