Dem. Gov. candidate Bill White makes stop in Tyler

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Texas Democratic candidate for governor, Bill White, made an East Texas stop Thursday. White shared his platform in Tyler, Texarkana and Marshall.

As a former mayor of Houston, and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy, White says he will focus on keeping the cost of living at a reasonable level. He says job creation is also at the top of his list.

"I know how to move bureaucracies forward, make government more responsive, get the most for the taxpayer's dollars, and, as somebody whose built businesses, been a chairman of a business, as a matter of fact, that was head-quartered in Tyler, I know how to run businesses efficiently," said White.

Early voting for the March 2nd primary kicked off on Tuesday.
