"...On City Council, challenger Alison Alter held a commanding lead over incumbent Sheri Gallo in District 10, with 66% of the vote – 6,261 out of a total 9,601 ballots cast. At Austin Community College, where two seats on ACC’s Board of Trustees remained up for grabs, Sean Hassan (Place 4) jumped out to an early 29-point lead over Michael Lewis; in Place 9, Julie Ann Nitsch held a 17-point lead over her challenger, Guadalupe Sosa...."
"...Gallo didn't return the Chronicle's requests for comment. – Annamarya Scaccia Nitsch, Hassan to the Board at ACC..."
"...We believe her work with the Workers Defense Project has given her experience in political organizing – important in securing votes for policy goals – as well as advocating on behalf of the city's working-class residents, a growing constituency within the ACC student body. Austin voters will be well-served with Gharakhanian filling the ACC board's lone open seat this cycle. [image-8-right] Place 9: Julie Ann Nitsch..."
"...However, that doesn't undercut Comstock's strengths as a candidate, as an advocate for Latinas, and for community outreach, which is vital for ACC. We endorse her over real estate broker Douglas Gibbins. Place 9: Julie Ann Nitsch..."
"...In Place 9, incumbent Julie Ann Nitsch, who helped spearhead the child care push, is being challenged by Round Rock businesswoman Lora Weber. Nitsch, a former Bernie Sanders organizer, wants to continue that progress and increase pay for adjunct faculty; she'd also like the district to transform its (currently closed) southwest Pinnacle campus into "the next Highland campus," with "full child care, some student housing, and space for the community to come together."..."
"...Nichols follows the group on an organizing tour of the state, through East Texas and elsewhere, talking to Central Texas activists like Austin Community College trustee Julie Ann Nitsch and congressional candidate Derrick Crowe. Nitsch tells him of the renewed energy coming from young Texans..."
"...The many bold-faced names in the room included state Sen. Kirk Watson, Council Member Pio Renteria, Austin Community College Trustee Julie Ann Nitsch, labor leaders Montserrat Garibay and Louis Malfaro, Justice of the Peace Sylvia Holmes, and a brace of still-beaming Dem midterm candidates: Julie Oliver, Mike Siegel, Chris Perri, Christine Eady Mann, Mary Wilson ....."
"...The schools right now look much like they did before, with LaTisha Anderson and Kristin Ashy joining the AISD board and Arati Singh and Carmen Tilton going to a run-off in the at-large Position 9. At the ACC, incumbents Barbara Mink and Julie Ann Nitsch rolled..."
"...Some big standing PACs – Real Estate Council of Austin, Austin Board of Realtors, Austin Firefighters Public Safety Fund – have begun to throw in, and even the Democratic Socialists of America have a PAC, which raised less than $1,000 to back D1 candidate Lewis Conway Jr. and Austin Community College incumbent trustee Julie Ann Nitsch......"
"...It's anchored in New Braunfels, though with shifting demographics along the I-35 corridor, and an anti-GOP backlash anticipated for 2018, her 32% margin of victory in 2012 may not prove a strong predictor of next year's results. Moreover, Kling's campaign might know a little bit about underdog success: Julie Ann Nitsch, who had an upset victory in November's election for Austin Community College board of trustees, is currently handling his press...."
"...Again, there was no clear winner, and it was actually a considerably tighter result than in Place 4. Going through to the next stage are Guadalupe "Lupe" Sosa (who currently holds Place 6, but deferred her retirement to run in this race) with 40% of the vote, and student and Bernie Sanders organizer Julie Ann Nitsch at 34%..."
"...On that final day, Place 9 seemed set for a two-horse race between Bernie Sanders organizer and former ACC student and employee Julie Ann Nitsch, and former Cedar Park Mayor Pro Tem Mitch Fuller. Then that morning Sosa emailed her fellow board members and informed them that she would be filing to replace Kaplan..."
"...“According to women who worked with him over the years, [Caceres] regularly harmed the work over petty squabbles, threw fits when things didn’t go his way, relied on intimidation to silence dissent, or dumped his responsibilities on others,” wrote Athar. Peña’s post also touched a nerve among progressive women leaders such as ACC Trustee Julie Ann Nitsch, Heather Busby, and Travis County Democratic Party Chair Dyana Limon-Mercado..."
"...Plaintiffs Amy Smith (a pseudonym), Austin Community College Trustee Julie Ann Nitsch, and Marina Conner filed on behalf of “all women” who’ve been raped in Travis County and were “adversely affected” by local law enforcement. It argues that malpractice on behalf of the government entities indicates there is “overwhelmingly no justice” in a system that allows sexual assault offenders to “walk freely to rape again.” Citing actions, behavior patterns, decision-making history, and departure from normal procedure, the plaintiffs contend that local law enforcement has committed “constitutional violations” by rejecting equal protection rights, failing to protect survivors’ personal privacy and dignity against “unwarranted state intrusion,” and by not timely or accurately testing rape kits...."
"...Place 9: Julie Ann Nitsch. Nitsch presents a strong option over Guadalupe Sosa thanks to her student's viewpoint and progressive credentials...."
"...Initiated when 22-year incumbent Allen Kaplan stepped down, there was sudden jockeying to become front-runner. However, at least one potential candidate had very unsubtle hints dropped to them that, since the pivotal ACC AFT union endorsement (and the inevitable list of local Democratic endorsements that would fall like dominoes behind it) was almost inevitably going to go to Julie Ann Nitsch, there was no point filing..."
"...After the normal introductions from the four candidates – businessman Jeremy Story, ACC student and staffer Julie Ann Nitsch, former Cedar Park Mayor Pro Tem Mitch Fuller, and current Place 6 holder Guadalupe "Lupe" Sosa – the audience questions began, and an icy chill descended. Former ACC AFT president Marshall Bennett told Story that he admired him for having the bravery to turn up, but that was where the compliments ended..."
