Brian Elliott - Texas House District 136

Third-party Candidate for Texas House of Representatives Takes Lead on Economic Recovery

CEDAR PARK, TEXAS, April 10, 2020 - Brian Elliott, an Austin lawyer, business executive and Libertarian candidate for Texas House District 136 (Cedar Park, NW Austin, Leander, Brushy Creek and Jollyville), today unveiled a comprehensive plan to spur economic growth and restore Texas' position as the economic engine of the country in the post-COVID-19 environment. The plan centers on major tax reductions and strategic economic development opportunities designed to create jobs, grow and diversify the Texas economy and reduce the regulatory burden slowing Texan business.

The centerpiece of Elliott's 10-Point Economic Recovery Plan is the elimination of property tax. The plan would replace an inefficient, inequitable and antiquated system with a state consumption tax. Elliott also advocates for structural reforms including a re-write of local land use powers and an overhaul of occupational licensing rules to remove unnecessary barriers to growth. The plan also calls for the immediate legalization of the cannabis industry in Texas, and the introduction of regulated sports betting. Together Elliott's Plan estimates that these two widely-supported initiatives will add 10s of billions to the Texas economy, create 10s of thousands of new jobs and help diversify the Texas economy away from its reliance on oil and gas revenue and the value of the property owned by Texas citizens.

"I have experience leading rapid growth in complex organizations, building consensus around bold ideas and finding creative solutions to create positive outcomes," Brian Elliott said. "Like many Texans I've watched while my neighbors and friends have closed their businesses, lost their jobs and lost hope while the Texas economy has been ravaged as collateral damage in efforts against coronavirus. I support bold ideas for rapid economic recovery. As a State Representative, I will work to pass bills that will turn bold ideas into reality."

A full version of Elliott's 10-Point Economic Recovery Plan is featured on his campaign website Elliott's campaign website also includes his perspective on the need to break the two-party system in US politics as well as his stand on many issues from Government Waste, Healthcare, Education, Gun Rights, Equal Rights and Criminal Justice Reform, among others.

A seasoned leader with expertise in complex deal structure, negotiations, corporate turnarounds and growth strategies, Elliott graduated from the University of Waterloo with a degree in Political Science and earned his Juris Doctor degree at the University of Miami School of Law, has completed coursework at Harvard Business School and is licensed to practice law in three states. In addition to running his own law practice Brian Elliott has held leadership positions in financial services, private equity, technology, ecommerce and real estate. He resides in Cedar Park Texas with his wife Joanna, son and house full of rescue and foster fail dogs.
