Program:  Michael Collier, Democratic Candidate for Texas Comptroller

With Wendy Davis at the top of the ticket, the statewide Democratic slate continues to grow. Kingswood businessman and accountant Mike Collier has announced his candidacy for Texas Comptroller. Mike is a serious candidate with serious financial and accounting credentials. He headed PriceWaterhouseCoopers’ Houston division, overseeing diligence audits for mergers and acquisitions. He also served as CFO for a major energy company. Mike pledges to replace the failed Combs’s approach to budget estimation and fiscal gamesmanship with honest accounting and authentic fiscal management. He’ll also bring back the Texas Performance Reviews that John Sharp pioneered and that saved taxpayers $8.5 billion. Qualified, talented, and honest—come meet Mike Collier and hear straight talk about Republic nonsense in government finance in Texas.
