Brian 4 Dallas

I’m excited about the prospect of representing District 10 residents of Lake Highlands and Hamilton Park  at City Hall.

My  background as a financial analyst, entrepreneur, business owner, community leader, and former City of Dallas Community Development Commissioner has given me the needed experience to represent you at City Hall.

I’m a 16-year Lake Highlands resident and have the experience and knowledge to represent you at City Hall.  Thank you for your vote on May 6, 2023.

Quality of Life

Understanding the needs of those living in Lake Highlands is important to me and during my campaign, I intend to listen and learn about what’s important to the many different areas of Lake Highlands.  As a 16-year resident of Lake Highlands and parent of two children that attend RISD schools, I support increased investment in areas that improve the quality of life for citizens in Dallas.

Safe Neighborhoods

I support the Dallas Police Department and the incredibly challenging and difficult job they do to keep the citizens of Dallas safe 24-7. I also believe we need to address any racial injustices that arise and ensure that we have a citizen oversight board that is able to review and recommend disciplinary actions.

We need to ensure that our 911 system and response times are closely monitored and that critical calls are being answered in a timely manner.

We need to continue to hire the best and brightest police, fire, and paramedics and continue to increase the number of officers on patrol and shifting some duties of uniformed officers to public citizens where it makes sense.

 

Affordable Housing and Reducing Homelessness

As former Community Development Commissioner for the City of Dallas appointed by Councilman Adam McGough and representing District 10, reducing homelessness and providing shelter for the unsheltered is a passion of mine.

We need to make sure that we are including affordable housing and multi-family units where it’s reasonable and move towards making our neighborhoods more inclusive and representative of those that live and work in our communities.

A Clean and Sustainable Dallas

As the 9th largest city in the United States, Dallas needs to lead on areas surrounding climate change and environmental policy.  What happens in Dallas makes a difference in the World and we need to have a BOLD approach to sustainability and getting to carbon neutral. 

As the Chairman of the Climate Reality DFW – Plastics Working Group I advocated for the passage of the Dallas Comprehensive Environmental & Climate Action Plan (CECAP) and am now fighting to ensure that we implement what’s been approved and continue to refine and enhance the CECAP overtime.

 

Lowering Taxes

It’s your tax dollars and you need to be able to voice how you want to see it spent. You also deserve to know that someone at City Hall is fighting for you to make sure that every dollar is accounted for and invested responsibly to make the City of Dallas a better place to live for all. 

Your input in the budget process and how the City Council votes to spend  tax revenues is on the top of my mind and I will fight to lower taxes and make every dollar we do collect go further.

Making City Government Accountable and Transparent

It’s important for citizens to easily engage in the political process and to see first-hand what is happening with their tax dollars.

Politicians and city staff are ultimately accountable to the people they serve and it’s important that we not only hold our government officials accountable for their actions but make sure that their actions are easily visible and feedback can be provided. 

Lower Taxes

The government at all levels needs to be accountable to the people that pay the bills – YOU the taxpayer!  At a local government level, we need to find new and innovative ways to streamline services and reduce the cost of government and ensure that every tax dollar is invested as intended and with a high level of scrutiny and transparency. 

Your input in the budget process and how the City Council votes to spend  tax revenues is on the top of my mind and I’ll fight to lower taxes and make every dollar we do collect go further.
