“Texans are very concerned about the debt load,” says Collier. “$100 billion in debt at the state level. A bit reason we have to borrow so much money is because state fiscal policy is not pushing dollars in the communities like San Angelo and that’s one of the things I hope to work on, there’s way too much debt. Way too much debt.”

Collier will face incumbent Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick in the November election.
