Joe Burger announces run for Mayor of Fate

(FATE, TX – Feb. 3, 2019) Joe Burger has announced that he will run for Mayor of Fate during the upcoming election.

“I feel that the City of Fate is positioned to flourish and that the future of Fate is bright. I want to continue to be a part of that process,” he said. “I have served the past five years on the City Council.  While on City Council I have spent time working with residents, business owners and city staff to make Fate stronger.”

Burger said that the areas that he has most actively supported are:

  • Fiscal Responsibility. Maintaining a reasonable tax rate for the homeowners.
    • I voted against the City Hall project because I felt it was more expensive than our City needed. This issue caused the tax rate to increase for the homeoowners.
    • I worked with others to make sure we made an investment in roadway improvements while not raising the tax rate.
    • The low tax rate has been maintained over the last five years.
  • The right investment at the right time.
    • Downtown revitalization is underway.
    • I have supported our Fate Department of Public Safety and it has grown consistent with our growth.
    • The right incentives for new business growth will be important to our future.

“I plan to continue working hard to serve our growing and changing community.  I hope to earn your vote over the next several months.  Thank you in advance for your consideration in the upcoming election,” said Burger.
