GAWTP Endorsement: Tyler (TX) City Council

We look for evidence of strong core principles, a conservative, limited government approach to public policy, including taxation and budget priorities.   We place a high premium on commonsense conservative leadership at the local level and look for a proven team builder and problem solver.  GAWTP looks for candidates who are familiar enough with Constitutional principles and the merits of a competitive free enterprise system that they can readily apply limited government principles and liberty to local policy decisions ; therefore, it is with great pleasure that we announce the endorsement of local businessman and champion of private property rights, Jason Wright.

Wright’s campaign platform is built on a solid understanding of limited government and freedom under the rule of law.   His direct and well articulated core principles of conservatism – backed up with specific examples of how he would apply these principles to governance — represent the kind of local leadership we need in these challenging economic times.

Wright’s record of championing private property rights and fighting abuse of eminent domain as a representative of the Texas Association of Realtors is impressive. This strong private property rights record, paired with Wright’s experience as the small business owner of a residential real estate firm, brings a balanced approach to protecting the investment value of homes while keeping Tyler’s economic growth vibrant.  Jason Wright’s knowledge of the purpose and mission of the Tyler Blueprint and the Half-cent Sales Tax “pay as you go” plan for capital improvements gives us a high level of assurance that the original intent of the Blueprint Business Plan’s streamlined, cost-efficient, citizen-first city government will move forward.” ###
