We’ve been working quietly to help forge a new broad-based electoral coalition of neighborhood, political and civic organizations from across the spectrum from the NAACP and LULAC, to leading Republicans. (see flier below)
Our goal? To file 20,000 signatures in January for a public vote for geographic representation on the Austin City Council.
Help us Pull the Shade, elect Kathie Tovo, and defeat yet another shameful tax dollar giveaway, this time to the billionaires at Formula 1.
There’s a BIG uptick in early voting in this runoff! It IS a meaningful race with clear differences. Here’s our take:
We’re getting into the race to Stop F1 Subsidies, Elect Kathie Tovo for Austin City Council & Help Pull the Shade!
ChangeAustin.org proudly endorses Kathie Tovo against current Austin City Council incumbent Randi Shade in the runoff election for City Council, Place 3. Our endorsement is based on Shade’s refusal to oppose a taxpayer subsidy to Formula 1 racing and her opposition to fair geographic representation for Austin voters. Read more here.
Wanna help us pull the Shade, tell F1 to pay its own way and to elect Tovo?
1. Click here, print out the flier and take it to your neighbors.
2. We’ve got tons of phone calls you can do from home — call us to help! (Need to make some extra money — call us!)
Or just forward this message to help rattle the bones of Austin voterswho haven’t been voting, who were looking for a reason to!
Here’s Bill Aleshire at the West Austin Democrats last week on F1. (Thanks to Todd Wroblewski for the filming.)
PS Go here for information on polling sites. Shade’s big money supporters in Austin’s growth machine are running negative and misleading ads — tell your neighbors to pull the Shade!
