Map shows precinct results for Austin housing bond defeat

Last Tuesday the $78 million Austin housing bond proposition was narrowly rejected by the voters by a margin of 51.4%. The City of Austin has mapped the percentage of votes against the bonds.

The dark red areas had the greatest percentage voting for the bonds and the dark blue areas had the greatest percentage voting against.

The map shows a pretty typical liberal vs. conservative distribution of votes for an Austin election.

 

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
