What is your position on providing increased funding for retiree health care for current and future City of Austin retired employees? Give specific actions you will take.

Amit Motwani

City Council, District 3

In a world where health care costs are rising and fixed incomes stay fixed, my position is that it’s the right thing to do to support increased funding for retiree health care for both current and future COA retirees. In addition to exploring ALL options within sustainable parameters, I’d also call for stronger coordination of upstream services (counseling, transportation, education, wellness, economic supports) through EAP or private social service organizations, to help reduce long term health care costs through preventive measures.
