What policies and approaches will you advocate to promote neighborhood improvement, and avoid neighborhood protectionism, as Austin changes and grows?

Reedy Macque Spigner III

City Council, District 1

As a community we need to rally and collaborate to find solutions for problems plaguing Austin. Council should concentrate on the communities that are susceptible to gentrification to prevent residents and small businesses from being priced out, as their neighborhoods become more attractive to developers and investors. Protecting our vulnerable citizens will send the right message that we are in this as a community.
