To The Honorable Dan Flynn
Texas House of Representatives
Dear Representative Flynn,
I am writing to thank you your leadership on the effort to end the time change in Texas.
I have been a morning radio personality in Texas for nearly all of my 42+ year career and I, like millions of other Texans who work strange shift hours, am finding it more difficult to adjust to the twice a year change with every passing year.
Spring forward. Fall back. Forward. Back. UGH!
As a business owner, I can tell you how hard the time change can be on employees.
The change may have helped back when families needed their kids in the fields after school, but that time has come and gone.
So why do we keep doing it? Tradition? Sometimes it’s okay to let go of tradition. This is one of those times.
It’s time to stick with the same time year-round, and most people who have contacted my show over the years prefer Daylight Saving time so there is more light in the evening hours. Personally, it doesn’t matter to me just as long as we pick one and stick with it. All the time.
Thank you for reading this letter and for pushing this issue in Austin. Hopefully enough Texans will get behind you so this will get done.
