WASHINGTON D.C. -- After serving texas 11th Congressional District for eight terms, Congressman Mike Conway delviered his final speech on the House floor on Wednesday evening.
"When Suzanne and I began this journey in 2002, we had no idea that this is where it would wind up or how long it would last. All I knew was that I saw a window of opportunity to serve my community, and I thought I could do a decent job.
"Luke 12:48 says “to whom much is given, much is required.” That verse has guided much of my decision making because I have been blessed with so much in my life, more than I could have ever expected.
"There is often an easy path in life, but very rarely is it the right path to walk. I have done my best to use my Judeo-Christian principles to guide my life, and my time in Congress has been no exception. The work I’ve been able to do has been extremely gratifying, but not for the reasons one might expect."
