What are the most critical issues in your district and how will you address them?

Danielle Skidmore

City Council, District 9

Besides the urgent need for transit locally, in the onslaught of attacks at the state and federal level, we must stick up for our beliefs and defend Austin values. From leaving the Paris Climate Accord to pre-empting our paid sick leave ordinance, to challenging sanctuary cities and rolling back marriage equality, we must fight back and think beyond D9’s borders to defends our residents. From expanding newborn screening in Texas to fighting the bathroom bill, I’ve always shown up for fellow Austinites and will continue to. It’s time for leadership; it’s time for all voices to be represented.
