Mike Martinez To Run For Austin Mayor

Updated: Wednesday, March 19 2014, 11:19 AM CDT

The race for Mayor of Austin is heating up with the announcement of a new candidate. Austin City Council Member Mike Martinez says he will formally launch his campaign on April 5.

"With an entirely new City Council, City Hall is going to be moving in a new direction. That’s why I believe Austin needs a leader with City Hall experience in the mayor’s office. As mayor, I will work with the new Council to ensure we hit the ground running and that geographic representation is successful and effective from day one," says Martinez.

Martinez supported the change to geographic representation of the City of Austin by voting in favor of the 10-1 proposal on the 2012 ballot.

Some of his goals for office include creating a new Austin Affordability Index that restricts city tax and spending increases, work with state legislators to increase the minimum wage in Austin to $10.10 and make new investments in both roads and urban rail to address Austin’s traffic crisis
