High taxes, irresponsible spending, and burdensome regulation are making Austin less affordable for the average family. 

Taxpayers need a voice.

I've stepped forward as a limited government candidate for Austin City Council in District 6 because we need a new conversation about the proper role of government in our lives and our wallets. 

Austin needs common-sense voices unafraid to push back against the faulty notion that government is the source of our economic growth and prosperity.  

Taxpayers need a strong voice on Austin City Council. 

I'm committed to being that voice.

    Right on Jay! Most important thing is CUT Property Taxes, and CUT out of the 1 BILLION $ in waste, fraud, and abuse in the City Budget, that’s 30% of the ATX annual budget, get it down to the per capita budget of the rest of the cities in Texas. Would be a GREAT start.

    Thanks for checking us out Dan! I’m excited about digging into these issues more as we go forward. I’m interested in the market dictating what new developments go up — apart from meddling by government. When government gets involved, it creates false markets that eventually crumble under the weight of real market forces. That, of course, leads to more government intervention, and more and more public money spent to correct problems created by previous government meddling! It’s a never ending cycle.

    In short, let’s start asking the very important threshold question: Should city government be involved in X issue? Most often, the answer is no. Central planning is well-intentioned, I think. But the results are all too often negative, and very costly. I’m running to make government leaner, less burdensome on small businesses, and to lower the cost of living in Austin.

    Stay tuned, Dan, it’s going to be a busy campaign — and a lot of fun too!

    What regulations in particular would you look to limit? Where would you stand on:
    • Minimum parking regulations
    • McMansion ordinance

    Would you support changing zoning? How do you feel about CodeNext? Do you have positions on any particular developments that have gone up at council recently, such as the S. Lamar development at the Taco Cabana site? Add some meat to your positions!

    …at long last. A non-liberal candidate.
