AISD Board District 5: Amber Elenz

AISD Board at large Place 8:  Gina Hinojosa

We do not endorse in races that we are not eligible to vote in, such as AISD Districts 2 and 3.

Health Care District Proposition 1: (Tax increase)  YES

City of Austin propositions:

1. Moving city elections to November — no endorsement.

2. Moving to November with 4-year Council terms — NO

3. 10-1 single member districts — NO

4. 8-2-1 single member districts — no endorsement

5. Council and appointees manage own staff — YES

6. Council appoints city attorney — YES

8. Council members can fundraise after an election — YES

9. Allow city to lease parkland to schools — YES

YES on all of the City of Austin bonds (Propositions 12-18).

A majority supported Propositions 4 and 7 and a majority opposed Proposition 1, but in each case the majority fell one vote short of the 60% needed for a club endorsement.

Lorenzo Sadun

President, West Austin Democrats
