A Letter to District 6 Taxpayers
To learn more about the heart of this campaign, please read the below message from Don.
District 6 deserves a PROVEN leader with the courage, competence, and conviction to bring fair and equal treatment for Northwest Austin neighborhoods.
Too often "the suburbs" of Travis and Williamson counties have been annexed as profit centers by the downtown government -- only to have their interestes be marginalized and ignored.
As that proven leader, I will represent our communities and insist on fair represenation at City Hall.
I'm Councilman Don Zimmerman. As your fellow taxpayer, I'm asking for your vote on November 8, 2016, for re-election to the Austin City Council for District 6.
If you're looking for a dependable public servant who will do everything he can to keep Austin affordable, look no further.
For over a decade, my public campaigns against tax increases have demonstrated that I've been very consistently and publicly working toward tax relief -- not just voicing it for votes during the campaign season. Voters are insisting on transparency and real tax relief from their elected officials.
I am the ONLY candidate responsible for ending a property tax during my tenure as President of the Northwest Austin Municipal Utility District No. 1 -- in 2010.
I have been successful at implementing a Homestead Exemption.
I have tenaciously striven to ensure that the agenda of the City Council remains in the hands of the Council, not in the hands of city bureaucrats.
I have continued to fight for the spirit of the Austin 10-1 Plan (going from an at-large Council to one with geographic districts). This plan was implemented to more accurately represent all taxpayers instead of just downtown special interests, though certain personalities downtown haven't quite gotten the message, yet!
There are many issues facing District 6 during this election, and I welcome you to contact me directly with questions or concerns via e-mail (in the "Contact Us" portion of this site) or call my cell phone at (512)577-8842.
I am grateful to the voters who took the time to view my website, learn about my strategies, and, most importantly, believe that I will make the changes that are long overdue.
Our campaign slogans are "Taxpayer Friendly" and "Voice of Reason at City Hall." Because we mean that, I ask for not only your vote, but your donation and endorsement.
Please feel free to explore this web site and learn more about our exiciting campaign.
Thank you for your vote.
P.S. You can contribute to my campaign HERE!
My covenant with the taxpayers of Northwest Austin.
If re-elected, I will:
* Continue my ongoing work to reduce our tax burden through maximized homestead exemptions.
* Work fervently to end illegal taxation and fees.
* Prevent wasteful and irrational bond proposals.
* Propose real traffic engineering fixes for road congestion relief -- not social engineering gimmicks.
* Work to curb Austin's bureaucratic morass by reducing staff by 10 percent and streamlining operations.
* Oppose the expensive and time-consuming practice of "exploratory reviews."
* Derail any rail proposals that Austinites do not want!
* Advocate for area residents who do not want to be annexed by the city.
* Protect our individual property rights.
* Stop the subsidizing of corporations with our tax dollars.
If you agree with these principles, please
