Governor: Kevin Still (write-in)
Kevin Still is a father, husband, and Veteran of the United States Army. He has spent the last 19 years in the surveying and engineering fields as well as just enjoying outdoor activities with his family.
Kevin is a middle-class taxpayer, who for the last 15 years has watched our government trample over the constitution and spend our tax dollars in reckless, unnecessary ways. He stands strong in his beliefs that as Texans we should NOT see increases in property taxes, as they are already high.
In order for us to have a stable economy we must FIRST have a stable border. As a society, we must focus on the education of our children and funding should never be cut when it comes to the future leaders, teachers, doctors, and citizens of the United States of America.
Currently, cold cases are backed up and we must ensure that criminals and their DNA are being processed in an orderly fashion so that we can protect our communities and take these criminals off the streets.
And lastly, our welfare system must be reformed because of the significant amount of abuse present within the system. Kevin would like for our country to be restored back to its founding documents and because of this belief he is willing to fight for the citizens of Texas.
