From Anthony Ricciardelli and family: “As home values rise, so do property taxes – that is, unless we decrease the tax rate enough to offset the increase in property valuations. If elected, I will fight tax increases by advocating for the largest possible tax rate decreases. I have pledged to vote for the “effective tax rate” in 2018, which will lower the tax rate commensurate to the aggregate increase in property valuations and thereby offset (for the average homeowner) the increase in taxes that would otherwise result from the increase in property valuations.
“To my knowledge, I am the only candidate for Place 2 who has pledged to vote for the effective tax rate in 2018. I am the only candidate for Place 2 who is endorsed by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, a project of Empower Texans, for my commitment to fiscally conservative policies that promote economic freedom in our community.”
Plano native Anthony Ricciardelli is running for Plano City Council Place 2. He is eager to bring a strong, conservative voice to local government.
Did you know? Anthony Ricciardelli grew up in Plano and is a proud graduate of Plano Senior High School. After graduating from Plano Senior and earning an undergraduate degree from the University of Texas, Anthony attended the University of Texas School of Law on a full merit scholarship.

As a result of his achievements as an attorney, Anthony has been named a “Rising Star” in the legal profession by Super Lawyers two years in a row.
Faith and family drive Anthony’s passion to make Plano an outstanding and safe community.
He and his wife, Liesl, returned to Plano to raise their young son, Ethan, where Anthony grew up and want to make sure that Ethan grows up in a Plano that remains every bit as great as it was when Anthony grew up here.
Anthony Ricciardelli is a committed lifelong conservative, having served as a delegate to his first Senatorial District 8 Convention when he was an 18-year-old high school senior.
