NPT Capitol: Pickett engages more than TxDOT this session. He’s getting married.
The Houston Chronicle’s Gary Scharrer, a former El Paso Times reporter, has the scoop on state Rep. Joe Pickett’s engagement to House assistant parliamentarian Shannon Wiggs. Click here to see the item.
Pickett said Scharrer, upon receiving an invite to a reception later this week, posted the item, not realizing that the event was not publicly known and that Pickett had not told his children yet. No hard feelings, Pickett said, although it did pre-empt him a bit. Scharrer, he said, is still invited to the reception.
