What policies do you support to make Austin a more affordable place to live for all residents?

Steve Adler


We need to bring down costs, esp. housing, and help people earn more. I support big investments in housing and mobility, including mass transit. Passed 2016 mobility bond and now pushing for large affordable housing bond. Led on 10% homestead exemption with goal of 20%. Increased senior and disabled exemption every year. Increased funding 540% in affordable housing trust fund. Enacted first regional workforce plan, taking 10k people from poverty. Passed paid sick leave and reworked incentives to target small and local businesses instead of big corps from outside Austin. Still much to do.
