Riley releases campaign platform

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 by Mark Richardson

District 9 City Council candidate Chris Riley released a platform for re-election Tuesday, highlighting contrasts between him and his opponents in the race for the new 10-1 Council. Riley’s platform emphasizes more ways for people to live, work, play and get around Austin.  “We need to provide more options for the many people who want to live closer in, live smaller and drive less,” said Riley. “Doing a better job of meeting that demand will not only promote affordability, it will also raise the quality of life in Austin, ease congestion and limit our environmental footprint.” He said his 10-point platform includes specifics on how he plans to advance his vision of Austin “as the most progressive city in America.” Riley’s platform can be found at his campaign website.
