State Rep. Joe Moody, D-El Paso, is among local lawmakers who keep a presence on Facebook. Reps. Marisa Marquez and Norma Chavez, are on FB, too. State Sen. Eliot Shapleigh has some related pages, but not a personal one.
Friday, Moody posted these pictures from an event honoring him as freshman lawmaker of the year.
Moody, who used to work in the El Paso County district attorney's office, just wrapped up his first legislative session in Austin. The Texas District and County Attorneys Association named him freshman lawmaker of the year, because he "passed more criminal justice legislation than any feshman in recent history and he consistently supported prosecutors and crime victims," according to a press release from Moody's office.
