I made it official

After months of traveling this great state, and talking with hundreds and hundreds of people from all walks of life, I announced this weekend that I am running for Lt. Governor of Texas.

Put simply, Texans want a Lt. Governor that will make them proud.

Appearing before a great crowd in Round Rock’s Main Street Plaza, I made my case why Dan Patrick has to go.

Mike Collier making his announcement for Lt. Governor

We’ve told him – we’ve demanded – that he work on great public schools.

We’ve told him – we’ve demanded – that he fix school finance and make property taxes fair again.

We’re running out of water. Our traffic is awful. And we’re taking on debt.

And what has our Lt. Governor been working on?

Bathrooms. School vouchers. A “Show me your papers” law.

Bottom line? He’s not serving ordinary Texans like you and me. He’s done nothing to bring Texans together to solve real problems.

Well, we’re going to hold him accountable. And I’m going to make the case for why I’d do a better job:

We’re going to fix property taxes.

We’re going to end corruption once and for all.

We’re going to fix our public education system for our children – and we’re going to do it by treating our teachers right.

We’re going to make Texas Proud.

I intend to run hard, fight with everything I’ve got, and win. With your support, I know we can win.

Texas Proud,
