Welcome to the Austinites For Zimmerman Campaign!My name is Don Zimmerman, and I would like your vote on November 8, 2016 for the Austin City Council District 6 election.
I am the only candidate in any Council District whose leadership actually abolished a property tax (in 2010)! I am also the most passionate friend of taxpayers on the council. Why? Because I am a TAXPAYER also!
I moved into District 6 in the Fall of 2000 and was elected to the City Council in 2014. For over a decade, my public campaigns against tax increases have demonstrated that I've been very consistently and publicly working towards tax relief -- not just voicing it for votes in campaign season. Voters are insisting on transparency and real tax relief results from their elected officials.
There are many issues facing District 6 during this election, so that is why I strongly encourage you to contact me directly with questions or concerns to my e-mail via this site, or my cell phone at 512-577-8842!
- I have tenaciously strived to ensure that the agenda of the City Council remains in the hands of the Council, and not in the hands of local bureaucrats. 10-1 was implemented to more accurately represent all taxpayers instead of downtown special interests.
- I am the ONLY candidate responsible for ending a property tax during my tenure as President of my Northwest Austin Municipal Utility District #1. I have been successful at implimenting a Homestead Exemption, but we must attain the maximum exemption allowed by law
- My opponents would like the Council votes to be 11-0, and that is what they will strive for. That is not representing YOU!
If re-elected, I will:
- Continue my past work to reduce our tax burden through maximized homestead exemptions.
- Work fervently to end illegal taxation and fees.
- Prevent wastefull 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% and streamline operations.
- Fight to prevent more WASTEFULL EXPLORATORY REVIEWS.
- Derail any Rail Proposals that Austinites DO NOT WANT!
- Fight for residence that do NOT want to be annexed.
- Protect OUR property rights.
- STOP the subsidizing of corporations.
District 6 deserves a PROVEN leader with the courage, competence, and conviction to bring fair and equal treatment for NorthWest suburbs, annexed as "profit centers" to the downtown government. That proven leader is me.
