FBI: Reports On Race In MC At Large Election Pos. 2...

Kevin Tunstall, a local healthcare business owner and tax reform advocate is also running for the council at large position 2 seat, being vacated by long-time Councilman Buddy Jimerson. In 2008 Tunstall ran for the District C seat on council and was the only area candidate to receive an endorsement from the Ron Paul presidential campaign. Over the years Tunstall has remained very active in local political issues.

When asked why he is again seeking to serve the voters of Missouri City, Tunstall, 45, said that the current administration has continued to raise taxes and bond debt over the years and have little to show for it. “They hire lobbyists with our tax dollars, who then act in opposition to the interests of our local businesses and families by opposing appraisal and property tax rate reforms,” Tunstall said.

“Last week the mayor pulled a ballot initiative that would have given the voters of Missouri City the option to implement a universal homestead exemption, which they currently are denied. Missouri City is one of the few cities in the area that does not offer this to its residents. Why would the mayor or any city official first offer the public this choice and then remove it, all within a month or two?

“It’s time for true fiscal responsibility and prudent actions in these tough times and to remember who placed us in office. We have a diverse and vibrant community and we need a clear direction as well as new leadership to insure a bright future,” Tunstall said.
