Central Austin Democrats back rail plan

Friday, August 22, 2014 by Jo Clifton

As different political clubs around town become engaged in planning for the November election, there’s bound to be a lot of heat and light. Glen Coleman, president of Central Austin Democrats, notes that his club endorsed the $600 million rail bond proposal Wednesday night after considerable discussion. Coleman said, “We had a spirited discussion which I would characterize, frankly, as a mix of anti-rail heat and pro-rail light. Rail prevailed, but it was pretty close.”
