Enough is enough with property taxes.

How many of you are paying thousands in property taxes and see your monthly payments rise, year after year, while your principal balance on your mortgage barely moves? 

How many of you see your hard earned money go to local and state institutions that provide zero benefit to you and your family.

Look no further than Parker County Junior College - how many of you knew a junior college is capable of collecting property taxes? Right here in Parker County residents are paying $0.11495 per $100 valuation.

Why should residents of Parker County be subsidizing post-secondary education? Many residents are already burdened with their own student loans, so why should we be paying thousands in property taxes over the years to the local JUCO?

Texas Compulsory Education Law dictates children aged 6 to 18 attend school; hence the Weatherford ISD property taxes (a whole other debate of unreasonably high taxes). No where in Texas law does it state a person over 18 is required to attend school, so why am we subsidizing their education?

Ever wonder why Wise County residents are ponying up property taxes for the brand new campus PCJC opened there?

Join me in putting this on the 2020 ballot.

Let's eliminate a useless taxing district. 

Be on the lookout for a petition to eliminate the Parker County Hospital District - a for profit hospital operator runs the hospital, while the PCHD runs the EMS and charity clinic with over $70M in their coffers. No more - enough is enough.
