Central Dispatch needs to happen in New Boston

It doesn’t take a genius or a rocket scientist to figure out that being a law enforcement officer in our country today is one of the hardest jobs around.

I mean, how many out there besides our police, firefighters, and military put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve, for a lot less money than they should earn, and often, for very little thanks.

So, it seems to me that anything we the people could do to make their lives easier would be not only a good thing, but the right thing to do. Right?

Rep. Ratcliffe hosts Tax Cut Roadshow in Northeast Texas

Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) hosted the Northeast Texas Tax Cut Roadshow Monday, where he visited businesses in Texas’ 4th Congressional District that were positively impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  The Roadshow included stops at Cypress Bank, Load Trail LLC, Tyson Foods and 903 Brewers.

 

“I voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act because I firmly believe that putting more money back into the hands of the American people is the right way to fuel robust economic growth on a local and national level. Since this bill was signed into law, we’ve already seen an enormous positive impact here in Northeast Texas,” Ratcliffe said.
