AMP turns back to music

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Yesterday, Austin Music People Executive Director Jennifer Houlihan announced that her group is now parting ways with the Ridesharing Works for Austin political action committee. In a statement to the press, she explained, “It has been a very rewarding process working to ensure that there was a full, balanced debate about the future of ridesharing in Austin, with an opportunity for all voices to be heard. Our goal was to make sure Council and the public were aware of the positive impacts of ridesharing to the music industry, and that message was delivered loud and clear through the many venue owners and music industry folks who lent their collective voices. As the campaign transitions, it is time for me to take a step back from my day-to-day involvement and refocus my efforts on Austin Music People’s numerous other priorities. I look forward to seeing how the ridesharing campaign unfolds.”
