Laura Pressley For Austin City Council District 4
Count on me to get the job done.
As an active community leader for the past 20 years, I've taken many opportunities to usher in real improvements in City Hall. As a Councilwoman, with District 4 as my guide, together we can:
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.
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 traffic light timing and 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.
