CLEBURNE, TEXAS – Congressman Roger Williams (R-Texas) today met with Johnson County officials at the Johnson County Courthouse in Cleburne to assess flood damage resulting from recent heavy rainfall in Texas.
“Mayor Cain, Judge Harmon and Commissioner Woolley and I met to evaluate the aftermath of this flooding and determine what steps need to be taken next to restore our community back to greatness,” said Williams. “For the last few weeks we have closely monitored the situation, and I have no doubt we will recover from this fully.”

Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse, we were delivered what we so desperately needed but far too much in far too short of time.
In a cruel twist of fate, Texas is now recovering from the worst flooding in recent history.Read More
