The Austin Board of Realtors has given the largest contribution — by far — to a single candidate in this election. That would be the $50,000 given to Robert Thomas in District 10. But what is ABOR asking for in return? ABOR does not disclose this on their website nor did they return Ken Martin’s call from TheAustinBulldog.org.
ChangeAustin.org does not dispute that groups should be allowed to raise and spend money to influence elections. After all, we are a PAC.
What we would dispute, however, is that there are PACs that do not disclose exactly what they’re asking the candidates to support.
On the other hand, we have done your homework for you, and we’ve made it abundantly clear exactly what we’re asking the candidates to do:
Read it, share it and steal back Austin!:
We have endorsed Jason Meeker in City Council District 10, the mighty Northwest.
And, please vote for Tim Mahoney, ACC-Place 1.
PS Today is the last day of early voting. Some polls are open ’til 9 pm tonight, such as the Highland Mall! (check here)
Thank you Austin!
