Ten Districts, Many Visions
Candidates building the road to 10-1 work to define Austin's new civic order
As part of our continuing coverage of this year's historic 10-1 city election, we've asked the Chronicle news writers to consider the new districts they've been covering, and to address the specific issues raised within those districts – not only by the candidates, but by the specific circumstances and demographic conditions of each district. Candidates may be using similar terms – for example, "affordability" or "public engagement" – but those terms often mean dramatically different things, depending on where one lives. Those distinctions have lent different shades to the campaign forums and discussions, and this week and next, we'll be considering those varying shadings. This week: Districts 1-5.
