Former Mayor Lee Leffingwell says he is "accepting compensation" for his role as chair of the campaign to pass Proposition 1 on May 7. He's hardly the only one: The transportation network companies are lavishing major bucks on local and national consultants to help pass regs favorable to their ride-hailing business.
More than five years after The Austin Bulldog filed a lawsuit against Mayor Lee Leffingwell, the other six council members, and the City of Austin, the Austin-based Third Court of Appeals on April 8, 2016, handed down a landmark legal decision. The court ruled that government officials are not "members of the public" and when they use private e-mail accounts to conduct public business they will forfeit the right to keep their e-mail addresses concealed from the public.
