Rep. Ted Poe (R-Houston), who represents the 2nd Congressional district, is slated to speak at a Lake Houston Area Chamber luncheon this month in Humble.
Poe -- a member of the House Judiciary and Foreign Affairs committees and chairman of the Congressional Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade -- will speak at the Chamber’s Focus on Federal Government luncheon.
Poe, who served as a criminal court judge in Houston for 22 years was also the chief felony prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office for eight years. While serving as a prosecutor, he held a zero-jury trial loss record. During his time as a judge in Houston, he became nationally known for his unusual sentencing known as “poetic justice.”
He has also been outspoken on issues such as border security and making frequent trips to the southern border to meet with local law enforcement and area residents. Poe has also gained national recognition for visiting U.S. troops around the world and for establishing a bipartisan Victims’ Rights Caucus to advocate for victims in the nation’s capital.
The luncheon will take place on Aug. 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Walden Country Club. Reservations are $30 per person for Chamber members and $35 for nonmembers and guests. Reserved tables of 10 are available for $300.
