Do you support maintaining affordable utility costs across Austin Energy and Austin Water that adheres strictly to the City’s affordability goals for Austin Energy, which require AustinEnergy rates to be in the bottom half of Texas ratepayers and minimizes increases to two percent per year for each rate class? (Y/N Explain)

Yes, Our plan will result in the complete elimination of utility costs, through our smart construction design, as well as the Universal Resource Access plan. We must shift currency exchange into the realm of innovation, creativity, and meritocracy, so everyone has a baseline of dignity, and we address the root causes of rising costs by employing automated and equitable systems that massively improve efficiency and reduce human labor burdens. The future is not imprisonment to a wage clock, since this is inherently unsustainable, a model that has proven it’s failure and disservice to humanity.
