Councilmember Don Zimmerman's campaign ad ridicules cyclists

How is this guy still a thing?

Unfortunately I have to ride through his district to commute to work and his depiction of how you should treat cycling commuters is representative of his constituents.

He's our local Donald Trump.

The Chronicle (9/16) reports that only two of Zimmerman's 36 committee appointees are women.

I wonder whether his constituents are generally pleased with what he's been doing, or whether they'll vote someone else in?  They did elect him once....

I'm in Don Zimmerman's district and will be voting for him for reelection. I've been pleased with his service.  I value his financial oversight on the city council and think it's important to have a voice of dissent on the dais.  -chuck-

Oversight should mean being strategic about your investments. Zimmerman just say's "No," to everything.

But he finds time to be proactive in getting in a dig at little Hispanic kids: http://patch.com/texas/downtownaustin/a … o-audience
