Mike Collier: Fighting for Texas

Watch our new ad

We’re on the air, friends.

For weeks we’ve been hammering Senator Glenn Hegar in the press and online with a simple message: Texas doesn’t need a massive sales tax increase.

I’ve been out there spreading the word. We’ve collected over 1,000 signatures on our petition calling on Senator Hegar to drop the idea. Now, even outside observers like Ross Ramsey, Executive Editor of the Texas Tribune, are noting that Senator Hegar’s tax plan would force Texas to more than double the State sales tax.

But Senator Hegar is digging in his heels, saying “I have not backtracked in any way from any statement.”

So we’re not letting up, either. This week, we went up on the air with a TV ad that shows Senator Hegar pushing the sales tax in his own words.

Who do you want collecting taxes and making economic forecasts for Texas? A politician who's been in the legislature for 12 years or a Certified Public Accountant who was the chief financial officer of an oil & gas company?

Taxpayers in Texas will want to hear this.

Texas needs business leaders to hold politicians accountable.

Mike CollierFor too long, Texas politicians have been more interested in their political ambition than in doing right by the hard working people of our state. Texas needs leaders who have the courage to tell taxpayers the truth and who have the know-how to hold the Texas politicians accountable.

The election may be over, but our work isn't done. As a business leader, financial professional, and devoted Texan concerned about our future, Mike is the kind of independent leader we need fighting for us.
