Perrys prepare to move back into renovated mansion
AUSTIN - Four years after the Governor's Mansion was devastated by fire, Gov. Rick Perry and his wife are preparing to move back into the Texas treasure, now restored to its historic glory.
Perry, in an interview soon after ending his presidential bid, said he was more than ready for the return. His staff said Wednesday that's expected to occur when the $25 million restoration project is completed in late July.
"I love downtown. I cannot wait to get back to where I can go out the back door of the residence over there, and hit the lake," Perry, who spoke of his enjoyment in running at the "magnificent" Lady Bird Lake, said in a February interview in his Capitol office.
"It's been four years," he said then. "Think about it. There's a whole passel - I'll bet you there's 60 members of the Legislature that have never been in it."
