Why John Stacy
In April of this year citizens across Rockwall County received their home appraisals from the county. Our property values are astronomically increasing, which is both good and bad. We need to elect representatives that are committed to lower the property tax to offset these increases in value. There is enough new growth to allow the county to expand services without over burdening existing properties. Our current commissioner not only voted for a pay raise within 8 months of being elected, but voted for a tax rate that was massive increase to home owners and businesses alike. John Stacy is committed to keeping taxes down and working within the budget to meet the demands of the future of Rockwall County.
The recent bond issue is another example of poor planning. “The recently passed bond package has no priority list of projects,” Stacy reports. “But since the community has voted for the $150 million bond, we will need someone on the Commission who will exercise the proper oversight in order to make sure that the road and transportation needs of Precinct 4 will be met. And If I’m elected, that person will be me.”
Contribute to a brighter future
Vote for John Stacy
Most importantly, Stacy believes the adage that “90 percent of success in life is just showing up.” Because Rockwall County has grown so much over the last few years, the office of Commissioner needs a full-time occupant – someone who is available to the people all the time, and not just when it’s convenient for the Commissioner.
Finally, Stacy strongly asserts that the Precinct 4 Commissioner needs to be elected, and not appointed, which is the case with the current incumbent, who is often more beholden to the Judge and the Court than to the citizens of Rockwall County.
Honesty, transparency, accountability, and simply showing up to do the job. These are the reasons to vote for John Stacy for Rockwall County Commissioner, Precinct 4.
Long Term Growth
The last two major expenditures from the county have yet to address long-term growth, including a jail with no juvenile holding cells and a county courthouse that does not house the entire county government.
Roads & Infrastructure
Roads and infrastructure must be improved in Rockwall County. This can only be done with a strategic plan.
Citizen engagement in the county is imperative. Collectively we need to be focused to better advertise and include citizen input into the county government.
