Governor Appoints Lubbock Councilman To Tax Task Force

It's been his goal to lower property taxes in Lubbock.  Now, Councilman Gary Boren will share his methods with the entire state.

Governor Rick Perry appointed Boren to the Texas Task Force on Appraisal Reform. Boren says, "We have a chance to apply our concepts in Lubbock to Austin. I'm glad that I have the opportunity to step up to home plate and swing the bat."

Last year, Governor Rick Perry recognized Boren and former Mayor Marc McDougal in Austin for Lubbock's efforts called Truth in Taxation.
