How to make Williamson County better
Cut taxes and spending
Republicans control the County Commissioners Court yet your property tax bill keeps going up. I want to reduce tax rates enough so that the check you write for your property tax bill gets smaller even when property values go up.
End corporate welfare
I’m for free markets and a level playing field for all businesses. Instead, the incumbent supports subsidies and tax cuts for a few lucky corporations while making everybody else pay higher taxes. We shouldn’t raise your taxes to subsidize new businesses to move here. That’s unfair, plus it crowds our schools and roads.
Stop arresting marijuana users
Most of the Williamson County budget pays for the criminal justice system including Sheriff’s deputy salaries, courts, and jails. Let’s stop wasting resources going after marijuana users and instead focus on violent crimes and theft, and pass the savings on to taxpayers.
