Members of AURA have voted overwhelmingly to endorse Austin City Council member Gregorio Casar, who represents District 4, for re-election in November.
AURA may endorse candidates in the other four City Council races later in the year. Casar is the only Council incumbent who received support from a supermajority of AURA members for an early endorsement.
Council Member Casar has been a staunch supporter of AURA’s vision of an Austin for Everyone. He has advanced the cause of abundant housing with a variety of practical policy solutions such as fair housing legislation, accessory dwelling units liberalization, and funding for affordable housing. AURA is looking forward to working further with Casar on housing, transit reform, and more in the years to come.
