Best Most Dogged Political Activist

Richard Troxell of House the Homeless

Not only has Troxell succeeded in keeping the camping ban and the homeless campus in the newspapers, but his tireless efforts have brought together the far-ranging, diverse homeless community. Troxell doesn't worry about making political friends. Instead, he relies on relentless advocacy for human dignity to fight his battles. He may not win very often, but Austin can count on Troxell to continue formulating creative solutions that put people first.
