05 Apr Real Solutions for Fiscal Responsibility
“Fiscal responsibility has been my top priority and will continue to be for as long as I am your Mayor. It took real solutions to adequately fund all of our reserve accounts, for the first time in many years, while offering an unprecedented six-cent reduction in Galveston’s Property Tax. And property tax reductions will be foremost in my mind as we approach this upcoming fiscal year.
Coupled with fiscal responsibility is the need to expand the City’s revenue streams. That is why I championed payment to the City for each passenger boarding a Cruise Ship at the new Cruise Terminal Three.
Fiscal Responsibility and efficiency of operation go hand in glove, and as your Mayor, both of these principles will guide me as budgets are evaluated and approved.”
