“Over the past 10 years, I’ve helped lead the charge in reducing the county’s portion of resident’s tax rate by 30% below the effective rate—delivering real tax cuts to taxpayers. My top priorities are to continue cutting tax rates while also pushing for appraisal reform at the state level; continue investing in regional and local flooding projects; and continue pushing for transportation and infrastructure enhancements to increase mobility within our county,” he said.
