A taxpayer’s perspective.
A strong fiscal conservative, Leland will bring a taxpayer’s perspective to City Hall. He’ll hold the line on taxes and focus our budget on basic services that impact our quality of life. And, he’ll fight against wasteful spending and look for smart ways to get taxpayers more for their tax dollars.
A strong ally of our police who’s served as a volunteer leader for Safer Dallas Better Dallas, Leland will be an outspoken advocate for public safety. He’ll lead to fully fund police and look for ways to invest in innovative, research-backed community-based policing strategies that keep us safe and address root causes of crime.
Quality of life.
Leland understands that great basic services elevate our everyday quality of life and serve our citizens, and they also attract quality growth. As our councilmember, Leland will make focusing on basics a priority, leading for investment in public safety, streets, alleys, parks and greenspaces that impact our daily quality of life.
Smart economic growth.
With experience shepherding his own real estate and finance businesses through difficult economies, Leland has a keen understanding of our economy and how to promote growth. As our councilmember, he’ll use his experience to guide us through challenging budgets, while protecting key services that will enhance our quality of life and help attract new opportunities to Dallas.
An engaged civic and non-profit leader who’s led and served on several boards that impact our community and our city, Leland believes that collaboration and consensus are not only keys to strong leadership, but they are also critical to building confidence and trust with taxpayers and citizens. As our councilmember, he will work to create strong lines of communication, build consensus, and be a leader for smart policy on Council.
