Most Austinites can agree the city has a mobility problem. How to fix the problem? Some say the mobility bond we’ll vote on in November is the solution. Not so, say Roger Falk and Mike Levy. They contend the city’s bond propopsal is full of “falsehoods, shortfalls, and pitfalls.” They will share specifics with the goal “to cultivate an informed voter, not one misled with false promises, half truths and unknowns.”
