Cast my vote today in Austin, TX

Voted straight ticket Democrat except for I think 1 or 3. Anything tax related. I was pretty happy to vote for Hillary Clinton, I was wondering if I'd have any inkling of clicking Donald Trump, but I did not. That makes me feel good.

I voted for the libertarian Tax Assessor, with so many people entering Austin, I would hope taxes can go down because of more growth.

I voted against the mobility package; it does not alleviate highway congestion, which is what costs us the most productivity and the matching funds from the federal government was not guaranteed, which means we'd likely have to fund it. I'm not saying the mobility package wouldn't have been nice for the Lamar corridor et al, but I wanted to send a message to the City Council to actually address highway congestion.

I made a mistake and voted for people I did not know in the ACC positions. They did not have party affiliations and I did not research them prior to going, so I ended up choosing the women running or a random name. I should not have voted for things I didn't have a clue on, oops.

My rep Roger Williams (R) is up for election, I voted for Kathi Thomas (D); I don't think she ran a very good campaign, I barely heard about either of them in any media....but I guess she's good.

Anyway, just felt like sharing my experience, I voted at the Randalls off William Cannon & Mopac.
