Return Galloway to Texas Senate

Return Galloway to Texas Senate

To the editor:

Character is when no one is looking and still doing the right thing.

In the fight over annexing communities against their wishes, there is only one candidate to vote for in the state Senate election – Michael Galloway.

As a former state senator, Galloway never went with the good ’ol boy network. If something struck him as morally and ethically incorrect, he had the courage of his convictions. Before the Tea Party, he introduced legislation that passed the Senate and effectively slowed down and provided …

Fiscal Responsibly

 

Since 2001, state spending has nearly doubled, approximately 15 billion dollars more than the rate of growth in population plus inflation. The standard refrain heard from legislators is that their hands are tied because of federal mandates and dedicated funds that are part of the budget process. Despite these claims, when revenues fell 10 billion dollars below projections in 2003 and 15 billion in 2011, they were able to balance the budget for the following years. This happened only because the funds were not available …

Stop Illegal Immigration

 

Illegal immigration is one of the most important issues facing Texas today. The failure of the federal government to enforce the current immigration laws and the lack of leadership in Austin has allowed illegal immigration and the security of our border to reach a Crisis Level. The flood of illegal aliens across our border has overwhelmed our public schools, driven up the cost of healthcare, and clogged our criminal justice system, costing Texas taxpayers billions of dollars annually. Based on the latest census data there …

Abolish the Margin Tax –

In 2007, under the guise of property tax relief, the Texas Legislature passed the largest tax increase in state history. Despite record budget surpluses that year, the Texas Legislature increased taxes on Texas business owners by more than 6 billion dollars. The Gross Margin Tax is a business income tax based on gross receipts, less either the cost of goods or cost of wages. This means that many small business with high revenue and low percentage of profit, particularly those who …

Stop Forced Annexation

 

Consent of the governed and the right of self-determination are fundamental rights that we have held sacred for more than 230 years. Abraham Lincoln said it best: No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent. You would be hard pressed to find anyone in this great state that would openly disagree with that statement. However, today in the State of Texas residents of areas annexed by home rule cities (cities with populations of 5,000 or greater) are not permitted to …
