In these challenging economic times, it is imperative that county government operate in the most efficient manner possible to reduce the burden on taxpayers. Affordability has been a great challenge to the Central Texas community for years. Now, with many out of work and the future of our economy uncertain, we must prioritize expenditures and focus on the core services that government exists to provide like roads, infrastructure, and first responders.
Becky will look for creative partnership opportunities with local municipalities, special districts, school districts, and the healthcare district where tax dollars and will be collectively leveraged to provide better services at a lower cost. It’s about doing more with less right now, and that is why Becky is 100% opposed to the Project Connect election and opposed to the county’s proposal to raise taxes due to the COVID-19 emergency. This is not the time to be raising taxes on people who are unemployed or underemployed. It is the time to get creative and provide new and innovative solutions to the challenges we face.
