Proposition 1 parties
Friday, May 6, 2016 by Jo Clifton
Our City, Our Safety, Our Choice — the political action committee opposing Proposition 1 — plans to gather at a familiar political watering hole, Scholz’ Garten, on May 7 after the polls close around 7 p.m., according to PAC spokesman Mykle Tomlinson. Ridesharing Works for Austin, the PAC promoting the proposition that would overturn city of Austin regulations for Uber and Lyft, among other ride-hailing companies, was still in the process of setting up its party, according to the group’s spokesman, Travis Considine, when we contacted him Thursday afternoon. Nearly 10 percent of Austin voters had cast ballots during early voting, and perhaps another 10 percent — or maybe more — will vote on Saturday. Either way, we’ll be there watching.
