Austinites for Progressive Reform Founder Andrew Allison and APR campaign manager Jim Wick joined News Editor Mike Clark-Madison to discuss the group’s proposals to change the timing of mayoral elections, expand the size of City Council, replace run-offs with ranked choice voting, and create public financing of Council campaigns with a “Democracy Dollars” program.
