Hometown: Topeka, KS
April 1, 2008
Locally, the adoption of Toll roads owned by foreign companies annoys me greatly. It demonstrates the problem with government monopoly. There is insufficient accountability to enforce terms of service. The basic services they are being funded to provide go unmet and force the public to pay additional fees to foreign interests that should have been met by the State of Texas.
I would like to see the Texas Enterprise Fund eliminated as it represents the worst in ethical policy by inviting bribes to the Governors office, violates the promise of level playing field for business, and uses taxpayer money to do it.
I've been involved in Austin Liberty Coalition activities since December 2007. I would describe myself as having the heart of a classic liberal, the mathematical concerns of a fiscal conservative, and the mind of a systems engineer.
I think good things, very good things are in store for the Austin Liberty Coalition... or everyone who loves liberty in Central Texas - Independent, Republican AND Democrat.
