About AustinPolitics.NET

Welcome to AustinPolitics.NET!

My name is Jack Craver.  I’ve been a hired pen in Austin since July 2015. I live in the South Lamar neighborhood in “missing middle housing” with my wife and two cats.

Since moving here I’ve covered city politics for a number of publications on a freelance basis and learned a few interesting things about the people and policies shaping our rapidly growing metropolis that I think the public should know. I provide this in two ways:

  • A daily email newsletter with exclusive breaking news and analysis on everything going on at City Hall. SUBSCRIBE HERE.
  • AustinPolitics.NET, where I usually post 1-2 daily articles examining major issues or trends in city politics/policy
