I put this ad on the radio to help spread the word about Prop 4 on the ballot. If you would like to help inform voters about this proposition which would make state income tax an option in the future, please feel free to post either of these audio files below on your social media.
Here is the text of the first recording:
Each of us has a financial responsibility for the protection of our children and future generations of Texas.
This is Mark Dorazio, your State Republican Executive Committeeman, Senate District 25. On November 5th, you have the opportunity to go to the polls and cast your vote to determine if a personal income tax can be imposed upon us and our communities. I wanted to clarify for everyone, A YES vote on Proposition 4 will prevent a state income tax from being passed by future legislators. If this is your desire, you need to vote “Yes” on Proposition 4 to prohibit a state income tax from coming to the Great State of Texas.
Don’t miss this opportunity. Get to the polls, and make your voice heard.
Early voting begins October the 21st, and Election Day is November the 5th.
God bless you, and God bless Texas.”
Here is the radio spot running now that early voting has begun:
