George Fuller Kicks Off Bid for Mayor with City-Wide Walk Campaign

March 7, 2009

McKinney, Texas – Surrounded by family, friends and dozens of volunteers George Fuller kicked off his campaign for Mayor of McKinney on Saturday with a city-wide neighborhood walk campaign.

“I want to be the Mayor that counts to 125,000, not just 4,” Fuller said to his supporters.  “I have heard over and over again that to get something done in this city, all you need to be able to do is count to four.  In other words, any four members of council provide a quorum and as such, decide our fate.  Assembling these “voting blocks” has become a practice that is not in the best interest of McKinney families, Fuller continued.  “We need new leadership at City Hall that will end the “Count to 4” decision-making process that caters to the needs of special interests  and replace it with a fair and open process where decisions are based on the needs of all 125,000 McKinney residents.”

 George Fuller is a community-focused businessman with an 18-year track record of building a better McKinney…literally.  A custom home builder, businessman and leading philanthropist, George and his wife, Maylee have actively contributed their time, talents and financial resources to the McKinney community for almost two decades. 

“My family and I have lived and built our businesses in McKinney since the early 90’s and have witnessed our city grow more than four times in population.  Unfortunately, I have also watched our distinct edge in city appeal over our neighboring cities of Allen, Frisco and Plano, slip away.  We must get back on track by putting McKinney families first,” Fuller said.

As a second generation home and commercial builder, George brought to McKinney a custom home and commercial construction company founded on six decades of experience.  George’s commitment to excellence has earned him numerous honors and distinctions including D Magazine’s “Builder of the Year Award” for 4 consecutive years.  He is also a 2-time winner of the Parade of Homes “People’s Choice Award.”

“My experience as a builder and businessman provide me with the knowledge and skills to successfully lead McKinney through this rapid growth era,” Fuller said.  “If elected, I will be a proactive Mayor who will work with our city manager, council and citizens to provide much needed property tax relief to working families, stop over budget spending through greater transparency at City Hall and  protect our neighborhoods and commercial districts by increasing support to our police and fire departments,” Fuller said.

 In 1992, George and Maylee, co-founded the Love Life Foundation, a non-profit organization benefiting children both locally and beyond.  The Love Life Foundation provides support to charities such as the Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center, The Samaritan Inn, Habitat for Humanity, Agape House and the St. Yared Orphanage- Axum, Ethiopia.  George and Maylee remain active board members of the Love Life Foundation, giving countless hours of their time each month.  Their charitable efforts have resulted in millions of dollars in contributions in benefit of women and children.

In addition to their work with the Love Life Foundation George and Maylee are both talented musicians.  They have volunteered their musical talents in benefit of numerous local ministries and charities as well as with ministries across the globe. 

“Maylee and I have always sought out ways to serve our community and ministries.  Becoming a candidate for Mayor is another opportunity to make a difference,” Fuller commented.

George and Maylee have made faith and family the cornerstone of their lives.  They are the proud parents of four beautiful children.  Austin, their eldest son, currently attends Virginia Tech on a football scholarship.  Raine, their second son, is a 4th grader who is active in karate and theater.  Layla Grace, their youngest daughter, is an energetic 2nd grader who enjoys basketball and soccer.  On a church mission trip to Axum, Ethiopia, George met and fell in love with their fourth child, Milyan Hope.  George and Maylee adopted Milyan who now resides with their family in McKinney and is a healthy, happy fourth grader.  George and Maylee have also made the St. Yared Orphanage one of the permanent beneficiaries of their Love Life Foundation.  George and his family are members of Community Life Church in McKinney.

Official Campaign Letter Released

March 5, 2009

Today we released the official campaign letter, which reads as follows:

Dear Resident:

I am contacting you today to ask for your support of my efforts to serve you and your family as the next Mayor of McKinney.  My family and I have lived and built our business in McKinney since the early 90’s and have witnessed our city grow more than four times in population.  As a citizen and active home builder investing in McKinney during this tremendous growth era, I have watched what was once a distinct edge in city appeal over our neighboring cities of Allen, Frisco and Plano, slip away.  We must get back on track. 

I have heard over and over again that to get something done in this city, all you need to be able to do is count to four.  In other words, any four members of council provide a quorum and as such, decide our fate.  Assembling these “voting blocks” has become a practice that has not always been in the best interest of McKinney families.   We have nearly 125,000 citizens in our city.  I want to serve as the Mayor that will count to 125,000, NOT just 4! 

On May 9th we have the opportunity to elect new leadership that will end the “Count to 4” decision-making process at City Hall and replace it with a fair and open process where decisions are based on the needs of ALL 125,000 McKinney residents.  If elected Mayor I pledge to create:

TAX RELIEF FOR MCKINNEY FAMILIES

·      Eliminate reckless and disproportionate spending of Tax Payers’ dollars outside our own McKinney Independent School District

·      Stop exporting McKinney tax dollars and jobs to Frisco and Allen by proactively seeking business relocations and attracting the best retail, restaurant and family entertainment amenity development to our own city  

·      Implement a growth plan for our Hwy 5, 121, 380 and 75 corridors 

·      Retain our local businesses through increased city support such as additional downtown parking and tourism initiatives

·      Use the combination of increased sales tax dollars and commercial property tax revenue to provide property tax relief to working families

TRANSPARENCY AT CITY HALL

·      A user-friendly public communication network that encourages citizen participation in city decisions rather than just informing them after the deal is done

·      Stop over-budget spending and demand fiscal responsibility by creating online access to the city’s checkbook

·      Limit Closed Session Council meetings to only those pertaining to internal personnel issues or those issues that compromise our competitive edge with neighboring cities 

PROTECT OUR FAMILIES

·      Increase funding for Police and Fire Protection which will:

  • Improve our Protection Class Rating resulting in significantly lower homeowner insurance premiums (our current rating is between 4 and 6 compared to Frisco’s perfect rating of 1
  • Stop the trend of increased crime in our neighborhoods and commercial districts

 

In order to implement these important reforms for the residents of McKinney, I need your:

 

  • Vote and the vote of your family, friends and neighbors
  • Campaign contribution
  • Permission to include your name on my Fuller 500 Steering Committee

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  I welcome your input and feedback.  My direct number is 469.247.1119.  You may also visit our campaign website at www.fullerformayor.com for important campaign information including Early and Election Day voting dates and locations, to request a sign or register for campaign email updates.

 

Thank you for your support and I look forward to working with you to put McKinney families first!

We’ve also included a PDF version of the “Official” version as well.
