How will you address Austin’s housing shortage? What regulations will you change to allow more housing where people want to live?

Lewis Conway Jr.

City Council, District 1

Our campaign endorsed the $250 million housing bond that the Austin City Council recently approved for the ballot in November. Our endorsement comes with a strong push to spend the bond money in an equitable and transformative way.

We are calling for the $100 million dollars set aside for land acquisition to be converted into a Municipal Affordable Housing Trust. The Municipal Affordable Housing Trust would invest in community land trusts to create permanent, equitable, and affordable housing in Austin.
