WHO AM I AND WHY AM I RUNNING?

      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.  My previous work experience includes positions at NASA and the U.S. Army. I hold degrees in biochemistry, computer science, and a doctorate in Business Administration.  I am qualified and ready to lead.

     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 has 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.

Duties of the Comptroller

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.  Drawing on my experience as the Financial IT Systems Administrator for NASA, I will publish an easy to understand budget that follows graphically the organizational chart of the State of Texas.  Because it should never be uncertain where the taxpayer's money is being spent.

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 all Texans a chance to succeed.  This is accomplished through a variety of programs.  Some programs help young Texans explore careers, others provide tools and resources to help parents save and pay for future careers and offer all Texans a way to contribute to those higher education dreams.  As a long time advocate and support of STEMs programs, I know how vital these classes are to our young people's future success.

It is my job to stretch every dollar with smarter spending. As the only candidate who is trained and certified as a Contracting Officer Representative by Defense Acquisition University.  I understand how to run the State Purchasing teams and justly award and manage hundreds of statewide contracts on behalf of more than 200 state agencies and 1,900 local government CO-OP members.

Abbott Rulings an Issue in Enterprise Fund Controversy

As Texas Comptroller I promise this will NEVER happen again while I am in office. While Texas gave millions in taxpayers money to Republican donors, attorney general Greg Abbott - now a candidate for Governor - blocked the public from finding out about it. Politicians are NOT above the law. Austin is Broken, I am the man to fix it! I am qualified and ready to lead!

"...in a blistering state audit shows that at least five of the recipients that were named in Abbott’s 2004 rulings — and which got tens of millions of dollars from the fund — never actually submitted formal applications. And if no applications ever existed..."
