Biographical Sketch

Richard Goodman was born June 8, 1949, in Laredo, Texas. His father was the county attorney and his grandparents were active in local politics. In 1967, Goodman began working in radio broadcasting and moved to Austin, Texas, in 1969 to work for KTBC-TV, and later KVUE-TV as the news director from 1971-1975. He left broadcasting to finish his degree at the University of Texas with a major in history and minor in government. He also operated a media production firm, Goodman, Isaacks & Vela, and was a business development officer for United Bank.

Goodman was 27 years old when he was elected to Austin City Council in May 1977. He served three terms in the District 4 seat, under Mayor Carol McClellan. From 1977-1981 his fellow council members were Lee Cooke, Betty Himmelblau, Ron Mullen, Jimmy Snell, and John Trevino. For his last term they were Larry Deuser, Roger Duncan, Ron Mullen, John Trevino, and Charles Urdy.

Goodman was a Democrat and self-described social liberal and fiscal conservative. He was known for being the original sponsor of Proposal 7, which reformed the city’s electric rate structure. He was opposed to the South Texas Nuclear Project and assisted in the 1981 “Sell It” campaign to authorize the city to find a way out of the project. His involvement in the cable television issue resulted in his being the only dissenting vote against renegotiating the contract with Capital Cable Company instead of opening it up to competitive bidding. He initially opposed the Motorola industrial site on the Williamson Creek watershed because of concerns over their discharge of toxic chemicals into the wastewater system. He resented that Motorola didn't find a site within the preferred growth area, but when the matter came up before a new council, he compromised in order to avoid forcing another public hearing on the issue.

He was a supporter of the city’s social service programs and believed that Austin needed to have a strong growth and development plan. He was also a proponent of public access television, downtown revitalization, protecting the environment, and fair housing. He voted against the Fair Housing Ordinance, however, because it did not provide protection from housing discrimination for the LGBTQ population. Though rated by Austin residents as the most popular member of the council in a 1980 Austin American-Statesman poll, Goodman publicly struggled with drug addiction near the end of his last term and chose not to seek re-election.

In the 1990s, Goodman moved to Southern California to help care for his adult son, John Bradford Goodman, who suffered from spinal muscular atrophy. In 2005, Richard Goodman died at the age of 55 in Burbank, California, after two months on life support for congestive heart failure.


Scope and Contents

The material in this collection documents former Austin City Council member Richard Goodman’s three terms from 1977-1983. Some of the boxes were organized according to a file index they came with, however a large amount were not found in the order indicated on the list. Most of the broad subject headings for the files were retained. The files are arranged in alphabetical order.

There is about 1 linear foot of material on Boards and Commissions that dates from 1977-1983. This includes material on twenty different boards and commissions including the Arts Commission, the Cable Commission, the Electric Utility Commission, the Human Relations Commission, the Water & Wastewater Commission, and others. The first folder contains a list of 43 City of Austin boards and commissions and instructions on applications and appointments. The rest of the material is primarily meeting agendas and minutes as well as memorandums, correspondence, reports, and memos directed to the City Council members. Various financial documents and budget items are also included.

The Correspondence series is largely in chronological order and consists of approximately 2.5 linear feet of material dating from 1977-1983. Some of the correspondence is arranged by specific subjects such as cable television, the proposed closure of Hancock Fire Station in 1977, and Goodman’s staff requests for information. The subject folders are primarily received correspondence only. All of the chronological folders contain both received and sent correspondence, except for January-February 1981 which is sent correspondence only, and April 1983 which is received correspondence only. Most of the correspondence is from constituents in opposition or support of various issues. One of the larger issues documented is the Fair Housing Ordinance in 1977, which Goodman opposed for not protecting the LGBTQ community from housing discrimination. The Bed Tax issue, which proposed giving 1% of the bed tax, or hotel occupancy tax, to the Arts Commission, was another popular issue that constituents wrote to Goodman about, generally in support of funding the arts. The Lake Austin growth management plan, the Massage Parlor Ordinance, and the Boat Ordinance are also issues that are largely documented in the correspondence. Many letters address aspects of the Capital Improvements Program budget. Some of the correspondence are recommendations or endorsements for individuals to be appointed or re-appointed to various committees, boards, or commissions. There are also several letters to Council with municipal judge appointment recommendations.

The largest amount of material is in the Subject/Working Files series dating from 1977-1983, comprising around 15 linear feet. These are in alphabetical order with several subjects having their own subseries: Airport, Barton Creek, Bonds, Budget, Finance & Research, Electric Utility, Health, Hospitals, Housing, Municipal Utility Districts, Parks & Recreation Department, Planning, Police Department, Political, Public Works, Transportation, and Water & Wastewater. Electric Utility material is about 1 linear foot and includes material on the South Texas Nuclear Project and Proposal 7, which proposed reforming the city's electric rates. There is approximately 2 linear feet of Budget, Finance, & Research material, including Capital Improvement Projects budget lists. Other subjects range from Austin Association for Retarded Citizens to zoning. In a folder for Public Works there is considerable information on the 1981 Memorial Day flood.
