Top Ten Reasons to Vote for Steve Adler for Mayor of Austin – #10

steve adler launch(Community Matters) Top Ten Reasons to Vote for Steve Adler for Austin’s Mayor

#10 – property taxes have risen ridiculously during the last 8 years while traffic, affordability & the quality of city services have gotten worse. We need a new way forward.

Energy, water, resource recovery, clean community, transportation user fees, drainage user fees and property taxes have risen ridiculously over the last eight years – while the quality of life as measured by traffic, affordability and the quality of city services* continues to decline. Steve’s opponents claim to be frugal & judicious, good managers, but their record doesn’t support this. Do we want more of the same or a new way forward?

(*the quality of city services has declined not for lack of smart, dedicated people but due to council’s failure to provide the right resources, technology and leadership)

my top 10 list isn’t from Steve’s campaign. These reflect my personal opinions only.
