Austin has experienced growth but some constituencies have been left behind. What is your vision for the City’s role in funding/supporting the nonprofit network that provide much needed social services? What is your plan for addressing disparities and inequities in our community?

Splitting AISD in half (east and west) will help facilitate these disparities because we will be able to allocate funding from high income west side schools to lower income east side schools, which will help reduce income disparity and keep more of our property tax revenue here in Austin.
