Press release from the Mike Collier for Lieutenant Governor campaign:
I used 30 years of financial investigative skills to study the financial records of the largest 100 school districts in Texas. What I discovered is stunning:Texans are being swindled by Dan Patrick and the so-called conservative Republican legislature.
Today at 2:30p.m. on Facebook live, I will walk Texas through my report, The Great Texas Property Tax Swindle, offering convincing proof that the Dan-Patrick-led Texas Legislature, not school district spending, is the root cause of our property tax crisis and chronically underfunded schools.
Then, I’ll explain my plan as Lt. Governor to reverse the state’s failed policies and increase school spending while simultaneously reducing property taxes for homeowners and small businesses.
