Join us on the most important trip to Austin to discuss Property Tax with State Legislators. $25/person to help defray costs. 50 seats. We will stop at one place and dine together but it is pay your own way.
We have scheduled face-to-face visits with Representatives: Bernal, Martinez Fischer, Pacheco, Gutierrez, Allison, and Larson; Senators: Mendendez; and Governor Abbott.
As homeowners we have compelling stories to share with our legislators. The crux of the matter is property values and rates have skyrocketed and homeowners can no longer carry the burden for all property owners. Property Values and Tax rates need to be curbed. Legacy homeowners need additional protection. Commercial Property Owners need to pay their fair share. Your story needs to be told.
