Calvin Tillman, Candidate for Aubrey City Council Place 4

Calvin Tillman for Aubrey City Council Place 4

I am running for Aubrey City Council Place 4.  My family and I moved to Aubrey four years ago from the small community of DISH, Texas located in western Denton County.  We have lived in Texas since 2003. While living in DISH, I served two years on the town board of commissioners and four years as mayor. 

I am a veteran of the United States Air Force.  My professional career is in aviation. I am a licensed aircraft mechanic and pilot, and have an aviation degree from the Community College of the Air Force, and a business degree from Concordia University of Texas. 

I have been married to my wife Tiffiney for 16 years, and we have 3 beautiful children: Clay, Josh and Evie.  My family attends First Rock Fellowship Church here in Aubrey.

Why Vote for Calvin Tillman?

§  A voice of reason and common sense in the municipal government.

§  Will work to decrease Aubrey’s over five million dollar debt.  

§  I am a regular citizen, not an Aubrey insider.

§  Believe in protecting private property rights.

§  Do not support the use of eminent domain.

§  Develop ordinances that make sense for small towns like Aubrey, abolish those that do not.  

§  I have no conflicts of interest with the local government, therefore will not profit from my service.

§  Will work for the people of Aubrey, not special interests. 

§  Proven municipal leadership.  

§  Supports local control. We do not need state or federal government infringing on our local government.

§  Will not vote for any additional municipal debt that would raise property taxes for Aubrey citizens.

§  Not afraid to rock the boat and make meaningful changes.

§  Will not support raising property taxes for any purpose.

§  Supports transparency in government. 

Accomplishments in Municipal Government. 

§  While serving as mayor in DISH, we were able to significantly cut the town’s debt, while cutting taxes and providing greater and better services.  For far too long, it appears that Aubrey has been a cash register for special interest, we have over five million dollars in debt with very little to show for it.  

§  If elected I will commit to returning the power to the people, lowering taxes, cutting municipal debt and working on behalf of every citizen, not just the few.  

§  Consistently have fought for private property rights for all Texans. 

§  Worked with county officials to repair and replace area roads, at lower costs to the taxpayers. 
§  Built a municipal park from private and public grants at no cost to the taxpayers.

§  Built a small library from private grants and very little public money.  

§  Worked with state officials on legislation that protects local control.

Why This Vote is Important?

Most people do not realize how much influence local governments have in our lives.  They set our tax rates, develop the ordinances that take away freedoms and liberties, and in many cases work for the interest of a few and not the community as a whole.  For this reason, I need you to vote Calvin Tillman for Aubrey City Council Place 4.  

Aubrey is over five million dollars in debt, with very little to show for it.  I believe that debt is excessive for a town of this size.  A small town like Aubrey does not get into that kind of debt on accident and this debt most certainly benefited some more than others.  It is my belief that there is more debt planned for the city.  This course must be stopped and I will work to do that.

Growth is coming to Aubrey whether we want it or not, the next ten years will be critical to Aubrey’s future.
