Too many times we let ourselves be pulled apart by conflicting ideas instead of using those different ideas to help make new approaches to our problems.

And that's as it should be for we are all working towards one goal and that is a better and more prosperous Austin, a city that can provide jobs for our children when they have finished their education and a decent living for those Willing to work for it.
