Heritage Tree Foundation backs candidates
Thursday, September 25, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Austin Heritage Tree Foundation has endorsed candidates in three of the 11 City Council races. According to its website, AHTF endorsed these candidates based on their “demonstrated genuine concern for preserving heritage trees and protecting the environment (creeks, trees and wildlife), and for their continuous support throughout the last years.” Apparently, this criteria fit only mayoral candidate Sheryl Cole, District 4 candidate Greg Casar and District 9 candidate Kathie Tovo.
