 Featuring

Glenn Hegar, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts

 

  

 

 

By Dokpe Ogunsanya, EWTG Program Director

 

Elected in November 2014, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar is a vigilant steward of Texas tax dollars and a strong advocate for job growth in our economy. As a staunch supporter of government transparency, Hegar believes all levels of government should be open and accountable to those who pay the bills — Texas taxpayers.

Hegar serves as Texas’ treasurer, check writer, tax collector, procurement officer and revenue estimator. He has a proven track record of fighting for conservative principles and ensuring taxpayer voices are heard in Texas state government. In the Texas Senate, Hegar oversaw all state and local revenue matters, during the 83rd legislative session, and he was instrumental in cutting $1 billion in taxes for Texas taxpayers and businesses.  As a business owner, Comptroller Hegar knows first hand that individuals, not government, will make better decisions with their hard-earned tax dollars and in turn help boost the economy.

Hegar also served as chair of the Sunset Advisory Commission, working to eliminate inefficiency in government agencies. In that role, he abolished six state agencies, saving the state taxpayers over $160 million dollars in the process.  As a former member of the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate, Hegar worked on a wide-range of common sense solutions that impact everyday citizens, such as public education, transportation, tax cuts, property tax reforms, water and tort reform.

Before his Senate tenure, Hegar attended Texas A&M as an undergraduate, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts. He then attended St. Mary’s University, earning a Master of Arts and his law degree. At the University of Arkansas, he earned his Master of Laws. Hegar is a sixth generation Texan, who grew up farming land that has been in his family since the mid-1800s. His upbringing taught him the core values of character, honesty, integrity and hard work. These are the same values that Glenn and his wife, Dara, work to instill in their three young children: Julia, Jonah and Claire.
