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. From my district’s perspective, where the income is substantially lower in many regions than the Austin’s MFI, this is important, and the paramount influence is what would reduce cost burden for the residents and small businesses.
