Best "Other Elected Official"

John Fitzpatrick

By "other," we mean "not a City Council member," but Austin ISD trustee Fitzpatrick has the kind of commitment to the city – not just to the schools – that we like to see at all levels of local government. On a board that has for too long not had the kind of vision, power, or influence that it should, Fitzpatrick is the kind of practical progressive that Austin likes – and needs.
