Conservative Republican for Collin County Commissioner, Precinct 1
Dear Collin County Voter,
Thank you for visiting my website, and thank you for the trust you have placed in me by electing me to serve as your Collin County Commissioner for Precinct 1. After being sworn in on November 12, 2014 to fulfill an unexpired term, I have worked hard to fulfill my campaign promises and earn your continued support. I began this journey with a proven track record of fighting for our core conservative principles, and I'm so very thankful to have had the opportunity to fulfill my campaign promises to you, and continue serving after being re-elected to fulfill my first full-term on November 8, 2016.
Combining my business experience, my passion for public service and dogged determination to fight for the taxpayers, I have maintained my focus on infrastructure and transportation, as well as working with our city leadership to develop conservative solutions to economic development. This has helped to ensure a healthy business climate, which in turn grows our tax base and brings jobs for our citizens.
Another of my key platform positions included supporting our public safety officials and law enforcement, helping to ensure that our first-responders, prosecutors and those who support our courts would seek to not only be trained here, but stay here by choice. As we approach compensation and benefits, we should also strive to be competitive in the local job market, attracting and retaining the best workforce possible to serve our citizens. I am thankful for the opportunity to support these positions and you can count on me to maintain my commitment.
I have remained a stalwart conservative, fighting for the values we hold so dear, such as protecting life, our individual liberties and free markets.
President Reagan inspired my generation to get involved and to become part of the solution. He challenged us all when he said “All of us came here because we knew the country could not go on the way it was going. So it falls to all of us to take action. We have to ask ourselves if we do nothing, where does all of this end? Can anyone here say that if we can’t do it, someone down the road can do it, and if no one does it, what happens to the country? I know it’s going to be a challenge, but ask yourselves if not us, who, if not now, when?” This is why I have worked so hard over the past two decades, to be in the game, working for conservative principles.
In closing, I am humbled by the endorsements and support I have received. Additionally, I would be honored to have you on my team as well, and together, we can ensure that Collin County continues to be the “jewel” of North Texas.
Collin County Commissioner, Precinct 1
