AURA has asked all members of Austin’s city council to answer some questions about their plans for an urban rail bond package expected to be on the ballot in November 2014. Since Mayor Leffingwell has decided “Rail or Fail” is his new catchphrase, it’s important for council members to share their vision for transportation & connectivity in the city.
It’s also important for our elected officials to be accountable for their plans for the future. I’ve followed many of the discussions and votes around the proposed bond package, but not everyone has the time or bandwidth to stay up to speed. This questionnaire is an important tool for the citizens of Austin to understand your vision of transit opportunities in our city.
I wrote each council member including Mayor Leffingwell, encouraging them to take the time to provide their answers to these important questions about Austin’s transportation future. I encourage you to do the same. If you want to make it easy, you can email all of them at once here: https://www.austintexas.gov/mail/all-council-members
