Statements about Housing

Federal law requires residents to participate in the U.S. government’s American Community Survey.

"78702 is the second-most gentrified ZIP code in the entire country."

Says "Austin has the lowest property tax rate by far of the five major cities in Texas."

"Ninety percent of Texans say they do not want the nursing homes to close. It polls higher than anything else."

Says Rep. Ken Legler "voted against installing fire sprinklers and emergency power generators in nursing homes."

"I vetoed more than $3 billion in spending. Lawmakers and I cut taxes for 40,000 small businesses. Now Texas is No. 1 in job creation. The nation’s five best housing markets are right here in Texas. We balanced five state budgets and we cut state spending."
