The featured speaker for Sunday’s 2nd Annual Earthday Festival, at the Aquarena Center in San Marcos, was supposed to be US Congressman Lloyd Doggett, but he was unable to attend due to a cycling accident. Reportedly, the Congressman and his wife were cycling Sunday morning in Austin when the incident occurred. Doggett was in surgery Sunday afternoon, but the extent of his injuries have not been made public.
The Democratic Congressman has been a long supporter of environmental issues, including cycling. For his work protecting the environment, Doggett was honored in 2006 by the Texas League of Conservation Voters with its inaugural Environmental Champion Award.
