How will you coordinate with regional partners to meaningfully address our increasing traffic level? What is your long-term vision for addressing traffic in Austin, and what would be the immediate first actions you would champion as a City Council Member to address the crisis?

Kathie Tovo

City Council, District 9

I have consistently and vocally supported urban rail during my time on Council. In 2014, I was one of the only City Council candidates who supported the rail proposition on that ballot. I still believe that mass transit is a key part of a long-term vision for addressing traffic regionally and I look forward to engaging with Capital Metro and other relevant partners through the Project Connect process.
