Laura Pressley For Austin City Council District 4
Count on me to get the job done.
As a active community leader for the past 20 years, I've taken many opportunities to usher in real improvements in our community and at City Hall. See the links below for the work we are already doing. As a Council Member, with District 4 as my guide, we can do much more.
Austinites deserve to thrive in Austin.
We will implement cost controls in utility departments, lower utility fees, develop a City of Austin Homestead Exemption and reduce subsidies to big corporations. These reductions will help homeowners and renters. A Homestead Exemption will enable more renters to become homeowners and build wealth for them and their families.
MAKE CITY HALL ACCOUNTABLE
Less waste and more common sense.
We will lead efforts to change the culture of City Hall from wasteful spending to a more frugal mindset.
PROTECT OUR NEIGHBORHOODS
Integrity and safety of our neighborhoods is key.
We will protect our quality of life and ensure EMS, Fire and Police have the resources they need.
GROW OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES
Spend more of our tax dollars locally.
We will increase the number of City contracts awarded to local businesses.
PROVIDE REAL TRAFFIC SOLUTIONS
Efficient roadways lead the way to progress.
We will optimize bus routes, traffic light timing, staggered work and class schedules, roadway and ramp design to improve mobility.
SAFEGUARD OUR ENVIRONMENT
Our health starts with our environment.
We will conserve water by supporting rainwater collection, repairing leaks and reusing gray water.
