Best State Legislator

Mark Strama

In his first term in the state house, Rep. Strama has been trying to undo some of the damage done to Texas democracy. After unseating Republican incumbent Jack Stick, the District 50 Democrat has championed state electoral and campaign-finance reform. As befits Austin’s voice in the House, he’s also backed tax breaks for hybrid cars and opposed school vouchers. And he's damn good-looking, to boot.
