Well, that’s re-settled then

Monday, April 10, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

We make no claims to have the resources or wherewithal to run a PolitiFact-type operation here at the Austin Monitor. However, once in a while, smart people reach out with answers to questions raised (and unraised, honestly). This week, Austin Community College adjunct professor Stefan Haag contacted us about having fact-checked City Council Member Ellen Troxclair’s recent claim that her district had voted in favor of the May Proposition 1 that would have overturned the city’s transportation network company regulations. According to Haag’s research, this is correct. District 8 narrowly approved Prop 1, with 6,150 people voting in favor and 6,049 people against. Good to know!
