Congressman Ted Poe (R-Tex., second district) recently addressed residents of Eagle’s Trace at the invitation of the community’s Government Affairs Committee. Poe spoke about the constitution and separation of powers.

A question-and-answer period followed Poe’s presentation, and participants’ level of engagement impressed the congressman.

“Where else in America can you find a gathering of people talking about the constitution at two o’clock on a Friday afternoon?” asks Poe. “There’s a wealth of wisdom in this room, and residents are up to date on current affairs. Their life experiences are a treasure.”

Congressman Poe has a special connection to Eagle’s Trace. His parents Dorrace and Virgil live at the West Houston Erickson Living community.

“I’m proud of Ted,” says Virgil, nodding toward his son. “I’ve learned a lot from him.”
