Texas Property Tax Corruption

If you need a refresher on what' going on, read this article at the Galveston County Daily News. Then get ready to take action!

As the article says:

Edd Hendee, a radio talk show host and executive director of Citizens Lowering Our Unfair Taxes, released figures indicating that the property values of Friendswood Mayor Kimball Brizendine, City Manager Ron Cox, council members such as Mel Measels and Laura Ewing and State Rep. Larry Taylor increased at less than the city’s average rate.

Hendee said records obtained through County Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson’s office show that while the average values for homeowners in Friendswood had increased almost 32 percent since 2000, the public officials he targeted saw either no increases or, in the case of Brizendine, increases of as little as 6 percent.

So what to do? You can email the Texas Attorney General at and request an investigation into this matter. Let's do it!
