yes, i watch election returns on saturday night

Happy day, Jennifer Kim is off the Austin City Council.

Seriously. I'm sure she's a perfectly nice person, but the prima donna act was a little much, and the fact that downtown has basically been destroyed* during her tenure on the council was enough for me to vote otherwise.


*By this, I am, of course, referring to the fact that the council incentivized the development of a ridiculous number of mixed-use units downtown and elsewhere in the city, displacing local businesses and making it even more difficult to find affordable housing anywhere close to the central city. Apparently we had a critical shortage of $400,000, 800-square foot condos.
