New Boston leaders seek Yes vote for upgrades without more taxes

The City of New Boston has called an election for November 6, 2017 asking taxpayers to re-allocate a portion of the sales tax being collected. The maximum sales tax rate in the state of Texas is 8.25% and New Boston Texas currently has a sales tax rate of 8.25%. 
If the proposition passes, the city will create a second Industrial Development Corporation that is a Type B Corporation. This sales tax adjustment will not change the total sales tax rate, it will only re-allocate a portion of the sales tax from the Type A Corp to the Type B Corp.

Prayers for Scott

By Kenny Mitchell

It was a routine Friday night under the lights for a Texas high school football game. Two teams, the Maud Cardinals and the James Bowie Pirates were on the field doing what hundreds of other teams were doing that night, playing the game that is as ingrained in Texas life as BBQ and pickup trucks.

Then something went wrong and changed the lives of a young boy and his family forever.

Scott Akins was on that field playing for his Pirates. A good kid, loyal, funny and outgoing, Scott loves spending time with his family, working on big rigs with his dad, and he loves the game of football.

He was playing the game that he has always been passionate about when his life changed.

“Unlike the gridlock in Washington, here in Texas, we made important progress with reforms to child protection, banning sanctuary cities, defending human life, and protecting taxpayers with a conservative state budget,” Rep. VanDeaver continued.
