Dallas Area Legislators Filing Inaccurate Financial Statements

Re: Dallas are Legislators Inaccurate Financial Statements
 
Dear Mr. Cox:
 
This complaint deals with Dallas area legislators who appear to have filed inaccurate (false) annual financial statements in regards to Part 6: Personal Notes and Lease Agreements requires filers to disclose all lease agreements involving the filer and/or family member wherein the liability exceeds $1,000.
 
The facts below clearly demonstrate that the named filers were involved in leases for autos and/or condo/apartments in Austin. However, as you’ll see they failed to disclose said leases in their financial statements.
 
Obviously, I do not have access to any lease agreements entered into by these filers; however, it would be hard to believe that they could obtain a condo/apartment for personal use without executing a lease in their own names. The same is true as to leasing a vehicle. Additionally, leasing furniture and/or appliances for an Austin condo/apartment for a filer would surely require him/her to sign the lease/rental agreement as to personal liability. In fact, there are some legislators who make said disclosures. I can provide that information to you if you’d like.
 
Below the filer’s name you’ll see breakdowns for “Austin Condo/Apt Lease” and/or “Auto Lease.” Following these headings is the yearly amounts paid, whether the lease was “not listed” or listed as “N/A, which is then followed by the date the filer filed his/her statement.
 
In an effort to not overwhelm your office, I have limited this complaint to legislators from the Dallas area. In the near future I will forward similar complaints involving legislators from San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Brownsville and El Paso areas for your consideration. The 10legislators named herein are listed in alphabetical order.
 
If there is any additional information you require, please do not hesitate to contact me. Again, thanks for your time and attention to this serious matter.
 
Respectfully yours,
