Watch: Chronicle Hosts Discussion of Props D, E, G, & H (aka Democracy Dollars)

Austinites for Progressive Reform discusses various propositions

With every election cycle, the Chronicle News team and editorial board take seriously the trust our readers have given us to navigate the issues and make our recommendations. This year, we've added opportunities for you to see and hear firsthand from the people behind the propositions on the May 1 special election ballot.

Austinites for Progressive Reform Founder Andrew Allison and APR campaign manager Jim Wick joined News Editor Mike Clark-Madison to discuss the group's proposals to change the timing of mayoral elections, expand the size of City Council, replace run-offs with ranked choice voting, and create public financing of Council campaigns with a "Democracy Dollars" program.

See our other forums on Prop B ("Camping Ban") and Prop F ("Strong Mayor").
