Speaker Pro Tem of the Texas House 2011

*7-25-2011: Rep. Beverly Woolley, a longtime Republican Party activist elevated to some of the most prestigious leadership positions in the Texas House, announced today – her 72nd birthday – that she would not seek re-election to represent her West Houston district, which straddles I-10 and stretches from Loop 610 nearly to Dairy Ashford Rd..

Woolley, who during her six terms in office served in the political powerful positions of Speaker Pro Tem and chair of the Calendars Committee, confessed that she found this year’s legislative session and special session arduous and exhausting.

“I’ve had a good run and I am proud of my accomplishments,” she said. But, she added, “It takes a lot of stamina. Sometimes you just need to know when to move on.”
