RESTORING TRUST IN WYLIE'S LEADERSHIP BECAUSE
YOUR OPINION MATTERS
AS YOUR COUNCIL MEMBER I WILL VOTE AGAINST INCREASING TAXES
I understand that Wylie's taxpayers are feeling the pain when it comes to property taxes. Like you, I'm feeling the pain too. You're living within your means and so should the city. As your council member I will:
Support adopting the effective tax rate
Back responsible cost savings during the budget season
Seek out and address wasteful spending year-round
I will work closely with city staff, to nurture a good working relationship and ensure that I understand what their needs are and why
Support smart retail and restaurant development which helps lower homeowner tax burden
TRAFFIC & GROWTH
AS YOUR COUNCIL MEMBER I WILL WORK TOWARD SMART SOLUTIONS
As residents of Wylie, we only have a few main thoroughfares in and out of Wylie. Like many of you, I travel out of town and back for my job each day. We should feel good coming home. As your council member I will work toward smart solutions like:
Ensuring the master traffic plan does not place an undue burden on residents
I will oppose high-density apartments and building projects that place a burden on traffic and schools
I will provide oversight of new development to ensure the WEDC makes smarter decisions when luring commerce to the area
AS YOUR COUNCIL MEMBER I WILL HELP ENSURE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF WYLIE REMAINS INTACT
Like you, I love the small-town feel of Wylie. It's one of the reasons I moved here. As residents, we are lucky to live in such a vibrant and culturally diverse community. As your council member I will:
Advocate for support of the downtown and corridor merchants
Vote against any ordinances that overstep homeowner's rights
Support high standards for new developments to ensure citizens do not get short-changed by deals that aren't healthy for the community
Ensure that your opinion is heard when it comes to change in Wylie
WHY I'M RUNNING
YOUR OPINION MATTERS
You want a fresh voice at city hall. One that believes council members should care what the residents think. One that doesn't want to see good people forced out of their homes because they can no longer afford their taxes. One that isn't interested in putting freeways across lakes and through neighborhoods when it's not good for the residents.
You want your faith to be restored in Wylie's leaders, and to know they are listening to you and care what you think. Like you, I believe in transparency and open-honest communication. If elected, I will be your hard-working council member whose votes and actions will be about your will, not mine.
THIS IS OUR WYLIE. LET'S MAKE IT A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE, WORK AND PLAY!
YOUR OPINION MATTERS!
