Collier for Texas Comptroller

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 a watchdog for a Comptroller, not just another ambitious legislator.

Mike CollierFor too long, the people we've hired to mind Texas' tax dollars have been more interested in their political ambition than in holding politicians accountable. Texas needs a Comptroller who has the courage to tell taxpayers the truth and who has the know-how to hold the Texas legislature accountable.

As a business leader, financial professional, and Democrat, Mike will bring a fresh perspective to Texas government and drive real reform in Austin.
