On this episode, we had a conversation with Andrew Allison, chair and member of the group Austinites for Progressive Reform. We discuss 5 Propositions on the May Ballot, ones that Austinites for Progressive reform introduced and are advocating for. Some of these propositions: moving to a mayor-council form of government, rank choice voting, and "Democracy Dollars", will drastically change the way the City of Austin conducts its day to day operations, or more importantly, shape the way it governs moving forward. To learn more about Austinites for Progressive Reform and propositions D, E, F, G, and H, head to their website austinprogress.org.
