The City of Austin and Travis County have a goal of reflecting the ethnic diversity of the community they serve; however, less than 1% of city or county executives are Asian Americans. Will you regularly monitor the numbers of employed Asian Americans in diversity reports, and can you describe how you could help to close the gap when necessary? And would you consider meeting with Asian American leaders to review progress in this area?

City Council, District 1

Yes, I will commit to taking a regular assessment of the diversity of our workforce. I will use the
tools available to me to support and encourage continued gains in diversity.
