wo North Austin City Council candidates, who will face off in a Dec. 16 runoff election, say the city is growing rapidly and that the District 7 Council member must make sure the area stays affordable.
District 7 candidate Leslie Pool, 59, is an executive assistant for Travis County Constable Carlos Lopez. She sailed ahead of the other seven candidates in the November election with 32 percent of the vote. Her opponent, attorney Jeb Boyt, 50, earned 17 percent.
At a candidate forum Monday night at St. John’s Episcopal Church that was hosted by the North Austin Community Newsletter, both candidates addressed development in the area...
On first day of early voting, the two remaining candidates in District 4 sat down to debate. Even though both focused on their plans for keeping North Austin affordable, their differences were apparent.
Greg Casar, 25, a community organizer, led the election on Nov. 4 with 39 percent of the vote. His opponent, Laura Pressley, 51, is the owner of Pure Rain LLC, a bottled-water company; she nabbed 22 percent of the vote. The two went head-to-head at a candidate forum Monday night at St. John’s Episcopal Church, hosted by the North Austin Community Newsletter.
