"Standing Up for The People of Travis County"

As a fourth generation Austinite, my heart and my family are here in Travis County. I cannot walk away and let corrupt, entrenched politicians take away all that my ancestors fought for to make this county and this state great. I will stand up for all of the people in Travis County. And I want you to stand with me.

I plan to win on November 4. As I talk with voters all over Travis County, I hear the same concerns: "My property taxes are too high," and "Traffic is terrible."

There is serious voter backlash against the heavy-handed rule and visible corruption in our county government. It is exemplified foremost by the kid-glove treatment of the current District Attorney, who displayed a contempt for the law and for those who enforce it. This is just the tip of the corruption iceberg.

Overtaxed property owners, commuters, and people who care about an open and honest government have not had an opportunity to see one of their own lead Travis County in decades; the door is open right now!

With your vote, we can realign the priorities of the Commissioners Court with the common-sense values and long-term interests of Travis County taxpayers.

Please take some time to get to know more about what I will do for you as Travis County Judge, and be sure to sign up for the campaign emails. Your financial support, volunteer support, and vote are greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Mike McNamara

Why I'm Running

Standing Up for the people of travis county

It's no secret that Texas' prosperity has been achieved by maintaining a low tax, low regulation environment. Texas unemployment is lower than the national average, and the rate in Travis County is even lower than the state. And yet, Travis County faces unique challenges, including government corruption, poverty, and rising property taxes.

Travis County has the opportunity to lead the state, but we must demand responsibility and accountability from our leadership. The County Judge must take the leadership role that has been lacking in the county.

The bottom line is this: After decades of dysfunction and mismanagement, residents of Travis County are depleted and exhausted.

I can make a difference for Travis County residents. I have the management and communications experience it takes to run a competent and effecient county government.

My priorities are as follows:

Ensure fiscal transparency and financial responsibility to prevent Travis County citizens, especially seniors and veterans, from being taxed out of their homes;

Ensure that roads are constructed where needed the most, especially in underserved areas in the county, and that current roads and bridges are properly maintained;

Ensure that adequate numbers of public safety heroes are deployed to secure safe neighborhoods, schoolyards and parks, and that necessary equipment and localized stations are delivered - not just promised!

Please sign up for my email list, and make a financial contribution through the secure form on the Contribute page.

With your support, we will make this vision a reality for Travis County now and for generations to follow.
