Nick Long For Mayor About - Fighting For Taxpayers

Fighting For Taxpayers

First elected to the League City Council in 2014, Nick has been a strong advocate for taxpayers by leading with fiscally conservative budget measures which have curbed wasteful spending and lowered the overall city tax rate by over 29%. His commitment to public safety has led to competitive law enforcement pay while also ensuring First Responders have everything necessary to keep our families and community safe.

Nick on the Issues

  Lower Taxes

As your next Mayor, I will put the Taxpayer First and will continue making League City one of the Best Places to Live in Texas by budgeting and managing our finances in a fiscally conservative manner and cutting property tax rates every year.

  Safe Neighborhoods

We live in one of the safest cities in Texas and that comes by having strong financial and moral support behind our First Responders (Police, Fire & EMS). By adding more police officers, investing heavily in the Fire Department and achieving the highest fire rating possible, and adding several EMS crews and ambulances, League City will continue being one of safest communities in the state to live and raise a family.

  Growth and Infrastructure

Strong population growth comes with challenges like drainage, traffic and infrastructure. As your next Mayor, I will manage growth in a responsible way by investing in the right infrastructure and ensure projects remain accountable to timelines and budgets.
