“My goals for Buda are very simple. Ensuring Buda enjoys a low tax rate while expanding our quality of life through public safety, updated infrastructure, parks programs, library programs and special events. We also can’t lose sight of the reason people chose to move here. It’s the sense of community and the small-town charm that Buda offers.”
