Voters across the nation, not to mention Central Texas, recognize that our political leadership has been DUI – driving our public decisions while under the influence of special interests. Therefore any movement for economic equity must, in our view, be married to a movement for political reform. ChangeAustin.org is also dedicated to structural political reforms such as redistricting reform, the right of citizens to initiative, referendum and recall, petition reform, uniform elections (why not hold them all in November?), and the elimination of voting machines which, incredibly, do not allow for a true recount (such as the Hart Intercivic machines used in Travis County.) One of our founders, Linda Curtis, also helped form Independent Texans in 2001, which is dedicated to these reforms and more. Go there to learn more.
