I am Ben Sanders, a Texas Businessman who has worked for liberty for 15 years. I want to be the next Comptroller of Texas because America and Texas are at a pivotal crossroads.
Our liberty and economic well-being will be lost if we do not act swiftly to maintain our sovereignty. I appreciate the fiscal dangers and hardship of my fellow Texans, and I have a plan to restore Texas. I am the only Comptroller candidate who was willing released their Tax Returns. If you can't trust and believe in your Comptroller to claim their Taxes correctly and honestly, how can you trust them to manage your money for the State of Texas.
As the guardian of the state’s finances, the Comptroller serves every citizen of the state. Legislators rely on the Comptroller’s office to chart the course of the Texas economy, produce annual financial reports and estimate future state revenues. State agencies trust the Comptroller to pay their bills and issue paychecks to their employees. Local officials and businesses look to this office for economic development guidance and data analysis. And all Texas residents depend on our agency to safeguard their tax dollars and ensure that they are handled wisely.
The Texas Comptroller's office serves the state by collecting more than 60 separate taxes, fees and assessments, including local sales taxes collected on behalf of more than 1,400 cities, counties and other local governments around the state.
As Texas' Cornerstone for Growth. The Comptroller's office administers the state's 529 plans and promotes local economic growth by identifying and fostering work force development initiatives across the state. The Comptroller's goal is to give every Texan every chance to succeed through a variety of programs to help young Texans explore careers, provide tools and resources to help parents save and pay for future careers and offer all Texans a way to contribute to those higher ed dreams.
It is my job to stretch every dollar with smarter spending. The State Purchasing teams award and manage hundreds of statewide contracts on behalf of more than 200 state agencies and 1,900 local government CO-OP members.
