Vote FOR Real Benefits, Not Against Progress

Fox 7 On Prop 1

  • More jobs
  • More transportation options – particularly in minority areas
  • Fewer drunk driving collisions and deaths
  • Shorter wait times alone on dark streets
  • Fewer attacks per driver
  • Lower costs

OR Against Proposition 1, which would mean a vote against all the above, plus:

  • Higher city expenses
  • More political donations to city council members
  • A huge signal to the world that Austin is not actually tech-friendly
  • A massive blow to the city’s attempt at winning a $50 million Smart City transportation grant
