On behalf of the 170,000 Texans in Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Polk, and Tyler counties, I offer heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mike Hamilton.

As a small business owner and public servant, Mike Hamilton was a champion for Southeast Texas. His election to the Texas House of Representatives was the tip of the spear for the conservative movement in Southeast Texas. As a member of the Texas Legislature, Mike fought for Southeast Texas values and mentored many of his colleagues.

I am confident that Mike is with our Savior Jesus Christ and that our Lord Jesus continues to comfort and strengthen his family and friends during this period of reflection.

For God and Texas,

James White State Representative House District 19
