City Council, District 9

In tandem with my answer above, I wish the distribution of power were different and that City Council could have more influence on this issue; as an engineer, I avoid political posturing to make promises outside of the realm of the role in question. But this is why we created Central Health… This question is a great one for us to pose to them and unrelentingly keep the pressure on. I could use my position as a bully pulpit—as a special needs parent, and an elected official—to hold Travis County accountable to their core mission, including the provision of tools to access health insurance in a market that’s currently far from perfect.
