Ms. Garza goes to Washington

Thursday, June 8, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

Although most people left Tuesday’s work session under the impression that City Council Member Delia Garza was attending to Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority business, she was, in fact, in Washington, D.C. Garza is at our nation’s capital on city business, representing the city of Austin in the 2017-2018 class of the Equitable Economic Development Fellowship. It’s the second year of the fellowship for Austin, which is run by the National League of Cities, PolicyLink and the Urban Land Institute in an effort to help cities balance growth with things like inclusivity, equitable access and transparency.
