Investing In Our Future

Going Coal Free

Develop and adopt an aggressive strategic plan to move Austin beyond coal and power our community’s future using clean, renewable sources of energy like wind and solar.

Moving Austin

Continue to develop plans and seek voter approval for investing in a robust urban rail system to help tackle traffic congestion and make it easier to move around the city.

Reforming City Hall

Watching Every Dime

Continue to fund basic services first, keep the tax rate low, and protect Austin’s superior bond rating, which allows our community to access investment capital affordably.
