Supporting our Schools
It was just announced that Williamson County Schools are now ranked #1 in the United States of all Counties serving more than 20,000 students. This is tremendous news for Williamson County, not only for our children, but for property owners and businesses alike. With this announcement, more companies will seek out Williamson County, bringing jobs along with economic growth. Additionally, property values, which have always remained strong in Williamson County, will see an additional uptick as a result of this news.
Kudos to our wonderful teachers, our parents, our hard-working students and faculty along with Superintendent, Dr. Mike Looney, and the School Board!!
Best Bang for your Buck
Another recent announcement was that Williamson County was ranked 10th in the nation for the “Best Bang for your Buck”, referring to those counties that have great schools, parks, roads and livability along with low taxes. This is something that doesn’t happen by accident. It takes individuals working together and working smart. Thanks to these efforts, we are able in this County “to have our cake and eat it too”.
When I first came onboard the commission 8 short years ago, Williamson County ranked 8th in the state in tourism. As a result of those dollars, the average household in Williamson County saved over $300 per year in property taxes. Today we are ranked 7th in tourism and the average household now saves over $400 a year!
Much of what brings in those tourism dollars is our efforts towards preservation. I was extremely proud to have authored the resolution that gave our historic downtown theatre a state qualified tax abatement; ensuring its place in our community for future generations to come. The Franklin Theatre, along with Carnton Plantation, the Carter House and our many other historic landmarks not only bring visitors to our community, but are a source of pride and aesthetic beauty for our residents as well.
