The City of Austin Certifies Save Austin Now PAC Petition to Ensure Adequate Police Staffing for Nov
AUSTIN, TX — Today the City Clerk certified the Save Austin Now PAC petition to ensure adequate police staffing for the November 2, 2021 ballot. After reviewing the signed petitions and analyzing them, the office found that of the 27,778 that were submitted, 25,786 were valid for a 93% validity rate. The petition drive began May 26, 2021 and was completed just 55 days later on July 19, 2021.
“We are pleased that the city certified our signed petitions and that we will now be placed directly on the November 2nd ballot. The upcoming election poses a stark choice for Austin voters: If you vote for our proposition, Austin will have adequate police staffing, the best-trained police force in the nation, and enact important police reforms. If you vote against our effort, we will continue to see the police staffing crisis worsen, violent crime skyrocket, and our city become measurably less safe for every neighborhood. The City Council has proven they do not support law enforcement and public safety. On November 2nd, we will prove the residents do.
