As a city councilman, I’ve voted against tax increases because we didn’t need them. Cutting waste and eliminating inefficiencies should always be the first course of action in governmental budgeting. It’s not, and that’s why we need more of our elected representatives to recognize that the taxpayer shouldn’t automatically be asked for more, particularly in challenging times.
The taxpayer is not an inexhaustible ATM and shouldn’t be treated as such. The path to economic prosperity begins by allowing our citizens to keep more of their money in their pocket.
I am proud to be a fierce advocate for the taxpayer and I’ve demonstrated political courage by standing up to vocal special interests.
I’m a pro-growth, pro-business economic and social conservative who fervently believes that we have been blessed to live in the greatest nation that history has ever known. And with our good fortune comes responsibility. We have a duty to serve our community and participate in the selection of our representatives.
My tenure as a military officer, a successful small business owner, and a Republican party activist for over 20 years has provided me with a honed skill set, balanced experience and an unwavering belief that the application of conservative values will ensure that Texas’ and America’s best days have yet to be counted.
