Will you refrain from supporting any economic development projects that do not adhere to a 90% local hiring requirement​, unless they are related to addressing a security threat to the Austin area? (Note: 2014 Candidates Steve Adler and Greg Casar approved this idea in ChangeAustin.org’s candidate questionnaire. To our knowledge, neither have attempted to fulfill this promise.)

I can commit to making sure that any economic development project the city pursues has tangible meaningful benefits for our community and hires as many locals as possible. With that said, I want to approach each project and evaluate it based on its particular merits before I peg it to a particular percentage.
