Best Council Activist

Richard Troxell

The mayor can't stand him, so he must be doing something right. He's Richard Troxell, who, as president of House the Homeless and a former Vietnam veteran, speaks for Austin's homeless population. Week after week at council chambers, he has waged a one-man war against Todd's anti-homeless ordinance passed last January. The camping ban is still on the books, but it'll be tirelessly challenged as long as Troxell's around.
