Our property taxes continue to soar while other government entities have collected more of our tax dollars on a year-to-year basis. This is why we took historic measures to actually reduce city taxes during my first term in office. At the City level, we must continue to set the example by adopting fiscally conservative budgets that will actually reduce city taxes.
When we do spend tax dollars, we must focus our efforts where it matters the most: on core city services such as public safety, parks, trails, streets, and sidewalks. That's why we invested in our streets and erased a six-year backlog of sidewalk repairs during my first term in office. We continue to add to our system of trails, and we are now on track to re-develop the Keller Sports Park into a top destination for all families to enjoy.
We must maintain the highest levels of public safety, and I remain as thankful as ever for the protection provided to my family and community by the men and women in law enforcement. Particularly in these trying times, we must express our gratitude to all those who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. Keller’s Police Officers and Firefighters are some of our Nation’s finest.
We must keep our focus on a vibrant economic development plan that focuses on high-quality, taxpayer-friendly development. This starts with recruiting more excellent commercial amenities and sit-down restaurants to Keller that will provide us with more options, and in turn, will help reduce the property tax burden.
Like many of you, my Family moved to Keller for its world-class schools. From ensuring student safety, to championing a mentorship program for Keller ISD’s youth, I will continue to prioritize collaborating with Keller ISD.
Whether you donate your time, treasure, or ideas, your support means everything.
