We need to continue improvements in process and customer service by using Lean Six Sigma business philosophies in the Tax Assessor-Collector's office. This approach will empower employees to find waste, improve process and save taxpayers money.
I agree with Governor Abbott that the 5 appointed members of the Tarrant County Appraisal District should become elected officials to be held accountable by the taxpayers. I also support Senate Bill 2 that would lower the State Property Tax Rollback Rate to 4% and require mandatory rollback elections. This process would put the power to lower the property tax burden in the hands of the taxpayers, not 5 appointed members of an Appraisal District.
I will not hold auto registrations hostage for unpaid Red Light Camera Ticket Fines. I propose a pilot program, in concert with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, to create kiosks for in-person auto registration renewals. Placing the kiosks in all 8 county court houses, as well as in selected automobile dealerships, will multiply the places tax payers can renew their auto registrations, eliminating long lines and lowering the administration and management costs for the county.
