Criticism of Adler ad ignores candidate’s substantive policy proposals

Brandon Mond

I work with Steve and know he wishes a 30-second ad could be more substantive, too. Does Horwitz have any thoughts on the 18-page policy paper posted on Adler's campaign website on affordability? The 15-pager on education? The ones on water or governance? First municipal campaign in Austin ever to be so substantive and "not normal." Adler is trying hard to elevate the debate in those ways where that's possible. He deserves credit, not derision.
