The Conversation is Still Going On

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There is a slight cooling in the air, it has actually rained in the Permian Basin, and the best news of all is that football has begun. But even though the onset of Fall is upon us once again, the demand for greatness above ground continues; so, pay attention, because new things are coming soon to “Start the Conversation”.

 

I am excited to announce that very soon we will be launching a podcast featuring guests and discussions about the Permian Basin, the needs we face and subsequent calls to action. If you have an idea about a guest I should interview for the podcast please email me and let me know. Together we can build a platform of discussion and challenge our region so desperately needs.

 

Also, before I shut down this post, let’s pursue a goal for the Fall. Every time you sit down to visit with, or write a letter to, a member of any of our local and regional taxing entities ask them for a favor. Ask them to please put aside their singular taxing entity priorities and find a way to work together with all taxing entities to establish a prioritized list of actionable items we as taxpayers must be prepared to pay for, when we are going to be asked to pay for it, and how each one is going to be paid for. We will never achieve excellence until we get our highest priority identified, work on it and then keep knocking out key issues one by one in order, on time and with excellence. This doesn’t mean we cannot work on other things but we cannot give every item 100%.

Ask a member of any of our local and regional taxing entities:

Please put aside singular taxing entity priorities and find a way to work together with all taxing entities to establish a prioritized list of actionable items we as taxpayers must be prepared to pay for, when we are going to be asked to pay for it, and how each one is going to be paid for.

I look forward to hearing from you.
