Bond Voyage: Preparing for your trip to the polls
On November 4, you’ll have numerous decisions to make when you cast your ballot. Among these choices: whether or not your tax dollars should fund two large bond packages. It is important that our community spends these dollars wisely, and it is critical that your vote is included in the decision. Join our panelists to discuss how funding will be used if voters support a transportation bond to build a new urban rail system and an education bond for Austin Community College. Come hear a balanced view of these initiatives so you can make an educated decision that aligns with your vision for our city.
