Laura Morrison releases first campaign ad

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 by Jack Craver

On Saturday, former Council Member Laura Morrison unveiled her first campaign ad in her bid to unseat Mayor Steve Adler. The one-minute video features footage of Morrison driving through town, talking with people at a town hall meeting and taking a dip at Barton Springs Pool. “I hear from folks all over the city who feel as though they’re being written off,” she says at the beginning. “They see housing becoming so expensive. They see traffic becoming unbearable. Their favorite local businesses having to close. Some of their friends and neighbors are having to leave and now they’re beginning to wonder if they or their children are going to be a part of the future of this city.” The solution, Morrison explains, is a “grassroots mayor,” to “protect and preserve the communities that built this town” as well as to “address affordability, address mobility and restore trust in City Hall.”

A Mayor For All Of Us

I'm an optimist. I know that Austin is going to grow, and I know we can grow in a way that makes our community stronger. The Mayor's job is to look out for all of us. That's what we need, and that's what I'll do.
