Dear Friends,

 

If you drive, pay property taxes or register to vote, you depend on the Travis County Tax Office for dependable and efficient services. When I announced my candidacy for Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector I pledged to;

  • increase online payments to the tax office,
  • increase the number of registered voters and make it easier to register to vote,
  • provide businesses with a new financing option to finance “Green Energy” projects, and
  • maintain a high level of customer service for our citizens

 

During the last 2 years we have made great progress on these initiatives and several others including;

 

  • Maintained a 99%+ property tax collection rate,
  •  improved our cash handling processes which has reduced the risk of loss of the more than $3.5 billion collected each year by the Tax Office,
  • consolidated information technology personnel to establish more efficiency and conduct a comprehensive office-wide technology review,
  • created easier and free access to voter registration data,
  • established  Tax Office leadership and employee recognition programs,
  • initiated first Tax Office strategic planning process, and
  • launched nation’s first E-Title project with the TX department of Motor Vehicles

I am very proud of our staff’s commitment to provide efficient services and further improve our services, transparency and security. I am running for re-election as your Tax Assessor-Collector to continue our work to seek cost-saving approaches in order to maintain pace with a rapidly growing population and I ask for your support.
