52nd Mayor of Austin- Readers’ Pick as Best Local Elected Official in Austin Chronicle's Best of Austin 2016, 2017, & 2018. Instagram: @mayorsteveadler
This week, Council can preserve every tool police need to protect public health and safety while decriminalizing the mere act of being homeless. Read how we’re making it happen. mayoradler.com/what-everyone-…
Proud to be pinned by my Austin Area Urban League CEO, Quincy Dunlap, and meet all twenty or so of his staff -- all empowering our community and changing lives. I'm a fan. https://t.co/0oscejz0Cd
Bill Wittliff did as much as anyone--and more than most--to make a place in the American imagination for Austin... and for Texas. May we always be the city he saw fit to capture so well. #TheWittliff
Cities are getting things done, working across borders to innovate and problem solve where it counts... locally. Honored to sign on to the important goals of the first ever North American Mayor's Summit. https://t.co/pGy5CCS7zw
The resignation of Superintendent Kelly Crook is a huge loss to the city and Del Valle ISD. We wish her the very best.
CM @JimmyFlannigan’s new blog offers a clear, data-driven response to the mysteriously funded petition against the unanimously approved expansion of the Convention Center. jimmyflannigan.com/dragon-petition
State law governing uses of hotel (HOT) taxes are clear. Council endorsed the BROADEST USES ALIGNED WITH CITY GOALS. Anyone who claims we could use funds for endless purposes unrelated to Convention Center is either misinformed or misleading you. #truth #dontsign (3/4)
Always ask 2 questions about petitions: 1) Are the petition claims true? and 2) who’s paying to make you think they’re true? In the case of the petition against the Convention Center, the answers are 1) “NO” and 2) #WHOKNOWSWHO? Someone is working hard to hide the #truth (2/4)
One last fact. At Council, scores showed their faces in support of the Convention Center expansion: homeless advocates, musicians, artists, preservationists, and hospitality workers. Whose are the faces behind the challenging petition? #whoknowswho #truth #dontsign (4/4)

Council’s expansion plan for the Convention Center will unleash hundreds of $millions for big priorities: address homelessness and the ARCH, fund musicians, artists, historic preservation, lots of jobs. ALL paid with tourist dollars – not a dime from local pockets. #truth (1/4)

“We can no longer afford to wait. Our infrastructure problem is not going to go away, and it’s certainly not going to get better with time.” A rep from American Society of Civil Engineers echoes local concerns as millions hit the road for Memorial Day. tinyurl.com/y29dlh38
We can never repay the brave men and women who gave all. But through acts of gratitude, we shine a light on their sacrifice so that all may see and remember. #MemorialDay https://t.co/V2y2jPML86

Join me in urging #Txlege House to protect Texans & create tax reform in #SB2 today. The 3.5% property tax revenue cap provides no real tax relief. Instead, it endangers Texans by making it impossible for cities to make the cuts required in #SB2 without impacting public safety.

2/2 We must do more than merely watch and be horrified — we must all join, speak and act to condemn. We must make sure we leave no place anywhere for hate or ambiguity.
1/2 Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured and killed and the synagogue community. We're seeing this hate in too many places and it's the same hate that drives racism, homophobia, and ethnic slurs, whether it invades churches, temples, or even a mosque in north Austin.

1/9) Mayors across Texas agree that #TxLege #HB2 & #SB2 ‘revenue caps’ hurt cities.
The reality is, because most Texas cities spend about two-thirds of their general fund budgets on public safety, it will be impossible to make the cuts required by #TxLege #HB2 and #SB2 without impacting public safety. atxne.ws/2CXjKyO
The magnitude of the budget hole left by #TxLege #HB2 and #SB2 is the equivalent of 612 firefighters or 549 police officers (or more than 50 percent of the entire operating budget for Austin Parks and Recreation). atxne.ws/2CXjKyO
In Austin alone, #TxLege #HB2 and #SB2 would cause an annual budget deficit of $51.7 million in three years and the typical Austin homeowner would save only $2.70 per month. atxne.ws/2CXjKyO

We are Republican and Democratic mayors, but we are Texans first. We share #TxLege’s desire for true property tax reform. But property taxes can only be lowered by fixing the school finance system. #HB2 and #SB2 put essential city services at risk. atxne.ws/2CXjKyO
#Txlege will soon consider 2.5% property tax “revenue cap” proposals that endanger Texans and provide no real property tax relief. We urge our legislators to protect public safety and other essential city services that are at risk under #HB2 and #SB2. atxne.ws/2CXjKyO
Our state should not cap the ability of cities to protect public safety and other critical and basic needs. #TxLege #HB2 and #SB2 limit what cities can raise in property taxes to fund city services. atxne.ws/2CXjKyO
