Texans take pride in our size, growth, and progress and a legacy of small government and low taxes. But even small government needs to be smart to keep up with population growth and new challenges. Progress too often gets sidetracked by the tyranny of the urgent – short-term issues or political distractions.
Texans expect our leaders at all levels to have their eyes on important long-term strategic goals to set Texas’ course and ensure its future prosperity.
The state needs a unifying vision for the future, as well as clear measures to assess our progress in achieving that vision for families, employers and others who are counting on it.
