Texas Flags to be Lowered to Half-Staff on Thursday April 4, 2013

Office of the Governor of the State of Texas sent this update out via e-mail, in regards to the Texas Flag status.

Governor Perry has issued the following directive:

The State of Texas has lost a valued elected official with the brutal murder of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia. As a mark of respect for this brave public servant and his wife, it is fitting that flags in Texas be lowered to half-staff.

Therefore, pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code and Title 4 of United States Code, as Chief Executive Officer and Governor of the State of Texas, I do hereby direct the lowering of all State of Texas and United States flags under the control of the state to half-staff in memory of the Honorable Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia, on Thursday, April 4, 2013. Flags should be returned to full staff on Friday, April 5.

 Our prayers of comfort are extended to the McLelland family in their time of grief, and I urge all Texans to remember and honor Mike and Cynthia’s service to the State of Texas.

Respectfully,

Rick Perry

Governor
