As anyone who lives in the Austin area knows by now, not only are “progressive” ideas making Austin unaffordable and difficult to start a small business or young family in, but it has gotten to where our lives and safety are at greatly increased risk.
Radicals such as Mayor Steve Adler and Council member Greg Casar have put us in a dangerous place. From rescinding the homeless camping ban, to cutting 9-1-1 services, to gutting the Austin police budget, they’re putting ideas ahead of common sense.
The Travis GOP is reaching across the aisle to work with Austinites of all backgrounds to “stop the insanity” and bring back basic law and order to our beloved city.
Below is a running list of ways you can get involved in taking back Austin.

Stop Candlewood — Candlewood Suites on Pecan Park Boulevard in Northwest Austin is currently being purchased by the city for use as a homeless shelter.
