Re-elect Brian Livingston for Frisco City Council
As I begin my bid for re-election to Frisco City Council for my 3rd and final term, I want to reflect a bit on my first six years of service and look forward a bit.
During my time on council some amazing things have happened.
- The PGA headquarters, golf courses and Omni PGA Frisco were approved and will open soon.
- We approved the first ever Senior Tax Freeze to protect our seniors.
- We initiated the first Homestead Tax Exemption and have increased it to 12.5% this year.
- We implemented an improved worker’s compensation policy to better protect our employees and their families.
- The first trail of Grand Park was opened.
The question that I am always asked is, “what have you done?” Let’s answer that here.
- I have been a team player with my council colleagues. We don’t always agree but we work well together to do what is best for Frisco. Our successes are not individual ones.
- I was the sole vote against 2 new multifamily developments that I thought were wrong for Frisco.
- I pushed for and ultimately got Wade Park developers to fix their fencing and remove debris that had been affecting nearby residents.
- I was the only council member to publicly state I wanted the unapproved “gender neutral” bathroom/Locker room policy at the Frisco Athletic Center stopped and ultimately had the signs taken down same day.
- In my first year on the City of Frisco Budget & Audit Committee, I recommended and achieved over a 13% reduction in our EDC operating budget.
- I pushed for and achieved moving a high rise building away from residences near Hall Park.
- I voted against the new city of Frisco Employee Clinic and will continue to vote against other things that spend taxpayer funds I don’t believe are the responsibility of government.
- I have focused on improving the relationship between Denton County officials and the City of Frisco and will continue to do so.
In my next term, I hope to keep doing a lot of the same such as eliminating wasteful spending, fighting density and getting tax relief to our citizens. Some of my goals:
- Get Downtown Frisco redevelopment started and empower the stakeholders to make it vibrant and family friendly.
- Get Grand Park development moving faster now that it has started and prepared for future councils to improve.
- Assist the new developers in filling in the 50 foot hole at Wade Park and get development started.
- Continue to make sure our first responders are trained, equipped, staffed, compensated and protected.
- As mentioned above, continue monitoring our budget to remove unnecessary expenses.
- Increase our Homestead Exemption to the 20% maximum allowed by state law.
