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

Mariana Salazar

City Council, District 1

I will address the affordability crisis, by increasing affordable housing, preventing further economic displacement, increasing affordable childcare options, and expanding public transit and mobility infrastructure. To address lack of economic opportunity, I will work to improve workforce development to provide access to higher paying jobs with benefits. To address lack of inclusion, I will work to develop better access to healthcare and healthy food options, mobile integrated healthcare, high-quality parks and recreation programming, and inclusion in Austin City Hall’s decision-making.
