    How Is 10-1 Working for Austin?

    In 2012, Austin voted to move away from an at-large City Council to single-member districts, and one of the reasons was to increase geographic and racial diversity.

Hear from Nelson Linder, Peck Young, and Anthony Gutierrez in a conversation moderated by Mike Ignatowski.
