I’ve traveled throughout the district. I’ve heard many voice their concerns. The strongest have been regarding our national economy. This is something I’m passionate about…bringing America into financial stability through fiscal responsibility.
Political campaigns are often filled with an abundance of promises. What sets my campaign apart? Proof.
For the past 25 years, I’ve owned and operated one of Addison’s top ranked restaurants. And I’ve done it without the added burden of debt. How was I able to accomplish this feat in such a challenged economy? The power of cash and self discipline. I wasn’t afraid of hard work. Fueled with a vision, my determination drove me to save half of every paycheck. That’s how I was able to generate enough capital to purchase my restaurant. And it’s this same mentality which has not only maintained but propelled my restaurant into the solid, financially stable business it is today.
Self discipline, vision and responsibility have been the principles which have guided me to success. With the steady growth of my restaurant, I’ve been able to hire more employees. The prosperity of my business has provided stability so these employees can have security during a troubled economy.
When I was the Mayor of Addison, I was able to help reduce the tax rate to one of the lowest in all of Texas. I not only cut the property tax rate in 2006 and 2007, but I also helped Addison to achieve its first ever AAA bond rating. Only 5 out of 1,215 Texas cities have ever achieved this rating. And when the recession hit, Addison was well prepared. Under my leadership, Addison had $11 million in reserve funds.
As your congressman, I will deliver on the promises I’ve made…lower taxes, fiscal responsibility and a balanced budget. I will follow the same principles which have provided financial stability and prosperity to my business as well as to the city of Addison. You can be confident when you place your trust in me. My promises are backed by proof.
