What policies and approaches will you advocate to promote neighborhood improvement, and avoid neighborhood protectionism, as Austin changes and grows?

Vincent Harding

City Council, District 1

I believe my temperament and experience will help me build coalitions and find compromises. As Chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, I did not take sides in some of the primary election contests. This allowed me to build relationships with people on all sides of political contests. In addition to the relationships, I got experience navigating sensitive political issues and maintaining confidences. Thus, I hope my approach will help different perspectives on issues find some compromise.
