The City Council cut $150M (34%) from the police budget when violent crime is growing the fastest rate in 5 years and when we led the nation in the growth of the homicide rate (WSJ data). We can reform policing, independently investigate brutality & reduce crime, but not by cutting $150M from our police.
The homeless camping ordinance is destroying our city by harming public safety, public health, tourism and the image of Austin. And it isn't compassionate for the homeless, who need to be in shelters, not in tents.
We are a nonpartisan group of Austin citizens who will support candidates who prioritize public safety and oppose those who do not.
Half the city council is on the ballot in November. To change the direction of the city, we must change the people who represent us.
