Young Chamber Endorses the 2018 City of Austin Bond

The Austin Young Chamber endorses the bond propositions proposed by the Austin City Council and urges all Austinites to vote for them this November

Along with all Austinites, many Austin Young Chamber members will have the chance to vote for seven (7) bond propositions (Propositions A – G) on Tuesday, November 6.

The Young Chamber encourages its members and all eligible Austin-area voters to cast their ballots in support of the propositions.

Our organization is particularly excited about Proposition A, which represents a $250 million investment in Affordable Housing for our city. This proposition would provide funding for the creation, rehabilitation, and retention of affordable rental and ownership housing.

Why we support the 2018 Bond

A few of the considerations influencing the Young Chamber’s endorsement include:

  • Our members and members’ current/future children stand to benefit from the 2018 Bond’s impact;
  • Municipal borrowing rates remain relatively low;
  • Maintenance is cheaper than repair; we should tackle infrastructure issues now to offset higher costs in the future.

Join us in supporting the Bond on election day, November 6.
