Conroe, September 3 – The Freedom and Liberty Conservatives Political Action Committee (FLCPAC) has announced the “Taxpayers Fight Back” campaign which the group will sponsor during the elections from November, 2019, to November, 2020. “We’re not just sheep waiting to be shorn,” FLCPAC Board member Bill O’Sullivan commented.
“‘Taxpayers Fight Back’ will be the theme of our campaigns for the November 2019 General Election, the March 2020 Republican Primary Election, the May 2020 General Election, the May 2020 Republican Runoff Election, and the November 2020 General Election,” FLCPAC Chair Kelli Cook explained. “We’re all sick and tired of the abuse we’ve suffered from elected officials who don’t represent us but instead put government ‘wants’ ahead of the taxpayers’ interests.”
FLCPAC led the “reform” campaign during the March 2018 Republican Primary Election. “We’ve assembled the same team who worked so hard during the Republican Primary Election to much success and a major statewide voter awareness organization has offered to help us on voter targeting and turnout,” Cook said.
On November 5, 2019, Texas voters will have the opportunity to ban a state income tax forever under Ballot Proposition 4. Proposition 4 reads: “The constitutional amendment prohibiting the imposition of an individual income tax, including a tax on an individual’s share of partnership and unincorporated association income.”
In the same election, voters within the Conroe Independent School District will have an opportunity to begin to reform that school district by rejecting two bond propositions, totaling $677 million, which are almost identical to the $807 million bond package voters rejected on May 4, 2019.
“Both of the issues on the November 5 ballot fit nicely within the theme ‘Taxpayers Fight Back,'” Cook noted. “We’re aware that the Children’s Hope PAC will oppose the bond directly, but we’ll remind taxpayers how much is at stake both in defeating the school bond and in passing the state income tax ban on the same day.”
Cook said, “My favorite elections are the Republican Primary elections. FLCPAC will endorse a slate of candidates who fit within our ‘Taxpayers Fight Back’ goal and who commit to reducing government spending and taxes. The dominance of the Republican Party in Montgomery County makes voting in the Republican Primary Election that much more important.”
FLCPAC intends to support taxpayer-friendly candidates in nonpartisan electoral contests as well.
In early 2019, the Citizens Budget Committee merged into FLCPAC. Jon Bouche has served as Chairman of the Citizens Budget Committee since the merger.
