What is your vision for the future of Austin, and how would you achieve it?

Steve Adler


Climate change is top concern. Need to act swiftly and decisively, and we have. Signed Paris Accords and committed city to action. Purchased largest and most cost-effective solar contracts getting city to 50% renewable by 2020. Actual steps by 2022 to shut down coal plant and working to electrify city fleets. Need code changes for more cost-efficient distributed water supply and energy generation. Continue pushing to maximum renewable goal and get to 100% by 2030 with tech advances. Do this while lowering electric rates, keeping utility affordable and owned by the residents of Austin.
