Q: What are your qualifications for this office and why are you seeking this office?
A: My background in financial planning uniquely qualifies me to understand the future financial position of our County. As Treasurer I have already identified several ways to save money, improve efficiency, and create solutions to eliminate waste. I have saved the taxpayers’ dollars by eliminating bank fees and helping refinance bonds saving over a million dollars of interest over the life of our bonds.
Q: The Texas Open Meeting Act requires business that comes before the Commissioners Court, in both open and closed sessions, to be publicly posted in sufficient detail to alert the public to issues of interest to them. What would you do to improve the commissioners' compliance with this act?
A: I was the first candidate to commit to place video of the Commissioners Court meetings online so that taxpayers and employees can easily see firsthand how decisions are made. As an elected official, I consider complete transparency something I owe the taxpayers. It’s imperative that we provide opportunities for citizens to be involved early in the decision process. I’m an advocate of using smart, cost efficient technology to make County government more effective. I’ve proven it as your County Treasurer and I’ve leveraged several techniques to communicate with supporters during the campaign. Text ‘Judge’ to 77948 to learn more.
