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

Mariana Salazar

City Council, District 1

As a working mother raising two children in East Austin, I know how tough it can be for a family to make a living in our city.  As a city council member, I will collaborate with the Austin community to address the affordability crisis by: promoting more affordable housing options for renters and homeowners, and preventing further economic displacement, promoting affordable child care & creating universal Pre-K, expanding public transit, sidewalks, bike lanes, and other mobility infrastructure, and promoting access to higher paying jobs with benefits through workforce development.
