Let’s Go Austin PAC raises $486,000

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 by Mark Richardson

The “Let’s Go Austin” political action committee that is campaigning for Proposition 1, the city’s November road and rail bond package, reports that it has raised $485,876 during the most recent reporting period. That brings the overall fundraising total to $559,121, according to PAC officials. LGA’s total current cash-on-hand — funds left to spend before Election Day — is $290,724. Greg Hartman, LGA’s treasurer, said the campaign has exceeded its initial fundraising goal of $500,000 and will continue to raise funds over the final month of the election. The November bond proposal totals $1 billion, with $400 million dedicated to road projects and $600 million dedicated to the first phase of the rail system.
