Exodus Alert: Governor Abbott’s Warning to Texas Community!

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has issued a warning concerning Austin, Texas, following a report by PODS, a removal company, which ranked Austin fifth on a list of cities with the highest number of move-outs. In a post on X, Abbott attributed the departure to “leftist policies” and warned that Austin could face similar issues to those experienced by San Francisco if changes are not made. Abbott suggested that other Texas cities offer more attractive living options.

Austin’s current mayor, Democrat Kirk Watson, was re-elected for a second term in December 2022, having previously served from 1997 to 2001. The city’s decline in net migration marks a significant shift from the recent boom period during the pandemic when tech companies and new residents flocked to Austin. PODS indicated that the city’s drop in popularity is due to declining affordability, housing prices, and limited space for new builds.

PODS noted that between July 2022 and July 2023, Travis County, which includes Austin, recorded negative net migration for the first time in two decades. According to PODS, the cities with the highest number of move-ins were Myrtle Beach, Wilmington, Houston, Greenville-Spartanburg, and Charlotte. North and South Carolina were particularly attractive due to their cost of living, quality of life, and lower tax rates.
