Press Release

Congressman Marc Veasey, the current President of the Texas State Society, released the following statement on the passing of former Congressman Ralph Hall:

“I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Ralph Hall, who served his country in the halls of Congress, and overseas during World War II. As a giant of Texas politics, Ralph devoted his life to public service, always fighting for his fellow Northeast Texans, and the betterment of Texas communities statewide. As a key ambassador for the Lone Star State for over 30 years, and as the oldest member to ever serve in Congress, he became a natural leader for our delegation. He was known for his generosity and bipartisan spirit that extended to staff on both sides of the aisle. I’m honored to sit on the same Energy and Commerce subcommittee he chaired. I extend my condolences to his family, friends, and all Texans who mourn his passing.”
