What are the most critical issues in your district and how will you address them?

Paige Ellis

City Council, District 8


Southwest Austin cares about affordability and city services. Among other things we need a code compliance substation in the district. We also need to end corporate tax giveaways such as the soccer stadium deal. If the residents pay our fair share, the corporations need to do so, too. Finally, our region is home to many people experiencing homelessness because they camp on the greenbelt at night and spend their days on traffic medians – but city funds to address this issue are limited to downtown. We pay for these services, we should have access to them in Southwest Austin.
