President of Direct Action Texas commented on the letter stating, “The grassroots were grateful for Governor Abbott speaking out on this issue, but now that the legislature has ignored his concerns it falls upon him to decide if reform occurs or not.

Call to Action! Show up to Reduce Your Taxes!

Posted by |

Tarrant County citizens, don’t wait until it is too late to reduce your property taxes!  Tomorrow night is YOUR LAST CHANCE to make your voice heard!

Your County Commissioners who want to continue their tax and spend policies don’t want you there.  They want to justify raising your taxes by saying “no one showed up” to protest or ask questions.  Don’t let them!  County Commissioner Andy Nguyen is giving you a chance to speak up, take it!  Early involvement is working with JPS and it can work with your tax rate as well.

We sent out a call to action when JPS wanted to quickly push through an $809 million bond package and you answered. It worked. Inside sources tell us that Robert Early, President and CEO of JPS Health Network, is fuming over the Blue Ribbon Committee’s results so far. The Committee listened to your input. They are discussing spending less money on the hospital in Downtown Fort Worth and using the funds for clinics in the communities that need them. They are looking at real change for JPS with a focus on indigent care, not competing with private hospitals. All because you answered the call and showed up.

It is time to be there again.  County Commissioner Nguyen is fighting for you and he needs backup.  He wants to implement a homestead exemption for Tarrant County. It would mean up to 20% exemption of the value of your home.  Tarrant taxes us more than liberal Dallas County! Tarrant County’s tax rate is higher with no homestead exemption, while county Dallas County’s tax rate is lower and offers a 20% homestead exemption. Yes, liberal Dallas County offers more tax breaks to homeowners that Tarrant County. This must change, but nothing will happen unless you are there.

We must FILL THE ROOM tomorrow night! Change will not happen unless we do. If you are not in Precinct 2 you still need to be there.  Your County Commissioner is not holding a Town Hall Meeting like this.  Come tomorrow night and call him out for not holding one. He will hear you. Commissioner Nguyen may not be your commissioner, but he is fighting for all of Tarrant County!

Be there, or don’t complain about your property taxes next time you write that check.
