About AustinPolitics.NET

Welcome to AustinPolitics.NET!

My name is Jack Craver. I’ve been a freelance reporter in Austin since July of 2015.  I cover City Council for the Austin Monitor and regularly contribute articles to other local and national publications.

This blog is what I do in my spare time. My focus is on city of Austin politics and policy, with a particular focus on transportation and city-building. I try to update it every weekday, so please visit every day, leave comments and send me tips at jackcraver88@gmail.com.

Once upon a time, I was a full-time political reporter in Madison, Wis., but my goal is to never have a real job again. To that end, in addition to reporting, I also provide copywriting services. So if you’re reading my blog and you think that my writing style would work well for you or your organization, feel free to drop me a line. As long as the work does not present a conflict with my reporting and you don’t make me use words like “utilize,” I’m your guy.
