The editorial board of AustinDistrict7.org has defined the scorecard categories that it will use when evaluating candidates in the District 7 City Council race.
The board identified eight issues, and two geographically-defined leadership categories:
- Livable Communities
- Public Safety and Health
- Housing Mix and Schools
- Environment and Open Space
- Business and Local Economy
In addition, the board will look at the candidate’s record on citywide issues, and in solving problems within District 7.
A final version of the scorecard, with additional context regarding the board’s thinking on each of the categories, will follow later this month.
The board includes residents from throughout the district, including six neighborhood association presidents.
