Deport Leffingwell

RECEIVED Thu., May 5, 2016

Dear Editor,
    Disruptive technologies mirror the persona of their creators. As we are seeing in Austin, rideshare app creators will take any action necessary to increase their bottom line.
    A family member was T-boned and suffered a concussion by an Uber driver in another state, and even though the distracted Uber driver admitted guilt, he was expecting Uber's insurance policy to cover the medical and vehicle costs. Not so! Uber said his policy should cover the costs. They hired an attorney that should have been unneeded, and finally prevailed.
    Former Mayor Lee Leffingwell, the chair of Ridesharing Works for Austin, had his candidacy promoted by a "Draft Leffingwell" campaign. His apparent need for some quick cash and lack of a moral compass should cause the "Draft Leffingwell" ringleaders to launch a new "Deport Leffingwell" campaign.
    Vote "No" on Prop 1 on May 7!
