Nick Barbaro:

Yeah, should we run an endorsement breakdown in the next issue?

Nick Barbaro:

Yeah, but it seems kind of unfair to leave it so one-sided.

Surely we should list all our allies:

* Real Estate Council of Austin

* Downtown Austin Neighborhood Association

* Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce

* Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

* Austin Chronicle

* Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty

* Former Austin Mayor Bruce Todd

* Former Austin Mayor Lee Cooke

* Former Austin Mayor Roy Butler

* Former Austin Mayor Pro Tem Betty Dunkerley

* Former Austin City Council Member Ronney Reynolds

* Former Austin City Council Member Lowell Lebermann
