What policies do you support to make Austin a more affordable place to live for all residents?

Paige Ellis

City Council, District 8


We need to protect the homestead exemption for homeowners, and increase dense housing and affordable housing inventory for renters. I will prioritize financial support for affordable housing projects that are 1) accessible by transit or could be accessible in the near future; 2) in close proximity to employment, job training, or education; 3) near Healthcare facilities or community services; and/or 4) identified in the Imagine Austin Growth Concept Master plan. I support the Affordable Housing Bond, I want to limit tax giveaways to corporations – they need to contribute their fair share.
