Best Mayor of South Austin: Mayo Pardo, Jovita's

Best Mayor of South Austin: Mayo Pardo, Jovita's

Born in South Austin. Raised in South Austin. Works in South Austin. Lives in South Austin. What better qualifications for the new mayor of South Austin, a position that's languished since the untimely passing of Danny Roy Young last year? Jovita's Mayo Pardo devotes as much of his time to his family and community as he does to being an activist/restaurateur. Seeing as how Eddie Wilson still holds the title of mayor of North Austin, it's clear we like our music and our food.
