Best Shadow Government

Dean Rindy, David Butts and Mark Yznaga

The Green Council - whether you love \'em or hate \'em, at least you know who to credit (blame?) for their succesful paths to public office. Media whiz Dean Rindy, and independent political consultants Butts and Yznaga are the tight-knit team which spun all seven councilmembers into office. Sometimes paid, sometimes unpaid, but always hanging around behind the scenes, this triumphant triumvirate carries more political weight in Austin than all the deep pockets West of MoPac combined. Just ask Eric Mitchell.
