I attended a great party on Friday night at the home of Tara and Chad Goldwasser (Goldwasser Real Estate is the premier real estate company in Ausin!). The event was in support of Austin Mayor Candidate Brewster McCracken. The election is just around the corner, and awareness of the issues and the future of this amazing city were the topics at hand.
A large crowd was in attendance to hear the candidate talk about what it is that make Austin a spectacular city, and discuss what we need to do to ensure that we are a thriving city going forward. We cannot rest on our past successes, nor can we just "hunker down" and hope for the best.
Early voting begins on Monday, and the election will be held on May 9th.
Historically Austinites do not have a very good turn out in local elections. The citizens talk a good game about being politically involved, but do not really show up to vote in the actual elections. Bummer.
During these trying times, the future of the city depends on having a plan for tomorrow. No matter who people vote for, this is not the year to ignore the election. Weak voter turn out is reserved for weak cities. Austin is better than that!
Hey Austinites --- No matter whom you support, please go vote. The "Some Assembly Required Blog" officially endorses Brewster McCracken for Mayor of Austin!
Have A Great Day.
