Responsible spending on basic city services
A few of my fellow candidates present inaccurate portraits of revenue. As a business leader for decades, I know we have the resources to do much better for you. With rising property values our city government is flush with revenue. So why are we still struggling to fund even the most basic city services? Poor ethics by some “leaders,” and that’s not only the convicted or indicted. Our ethics have to guide us, not just “does it break the law?” I will keep a close eye on the bottom line, insist on transparency in budgeting, fight against waste and excessive spending, and work to make sure our tax dollars are focused where they can do the most good for our everyday lives. We can definitely improve, and this is an area in which the best practices of private industry will disrupt old political hierarchies and improve your daily life, in Dallas.
