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?

Under our current economic climate, I generally do not support using our tax dollars to recruit businesses to Austin. But, if such a deal occurs, I absolutely would push for local hire requirements, along with workforce training, living wages and other worker protections.
