Also expect more bond packages on the election ballot.
by Peter Stern
Governor Rick Perry and Texas legislators think they are fooling taxpayers. In most cases they are. Why else would Texas homeowners continue to approve road and school bond packages, along with other bond packages and increased tax rates?
But the state of Texas will look great fiscally --- on paper only!
During the past 10 years, the "smoke and mirrors" politics and fiscal manipulations of the Rick Perry administration and his "merry band of" Legislators are killing Texas homeowners who pay some of the highest property taxes in the nation --- and it just gets worse and worse.
Texas voters on the state and local levels need to get rid of the folks who continue to tack on costs to hard-working and hardly working Texans. We need to get some new and not yet corrupted elected and appointed officials into a lackluster system of government. Maybe then we can get back on-track to making Texas a better fiscal, social and political climate for ALL Texans.
So, start voting 'em out this November and keep on doing it!
