Election Coverage: Refitting the Dais
Council math, with a few outstanding variables
News Story  November 8, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger
"...And in D8, where Bobby Levinski's defeat yanks the most outspoken land use candidate out of contention, run-off candidates Frank Ward and Paige Ellis could sway the body in either direction (preservation to densification, respectively) depending on who emerges – though Ward likely wouldn't take things too far in the preservationists' direction should he win, following in the tradition of departing Ellen Troxclair...."

Rebooted City Council Gets a New Chance to Fix Austin
10-1, take two
News Story  January 10, 2019, by Nina Hernandez
"...It's a good thing he's got his bearings, because the upcoming year, which formally began with Monday's swearing-in of both new (Paige Ellis and Natasha Harper-Madison) and returning (Mayor Steve Adler, Ann Kitchen, Pio Renteria, Kathie Tovo) council members, isn't likely to prove any lighter a load. He'll earn the pay raise Council gave him at the end of last year as he reinvents CodeNEXT, spends the money voters approved in the 2018 and 2016 bonds, implements the long-gestating Austin Strategic Mobility Plan in conjunction with Capital Metro's Project Connect, and tackles the homelessness crisis facing every corner of the city..."

Chronicle Endorsements
Dec. 11 Run-off Election; Early Voting Nov. 29-Dec. 7

"...Though a quieter voice on the dais, Renteria is a team player who's spent the past four years getting several affordable housing projects in D3 off the ground. We look forward to him building on those accomplishments and taking a more assertive role as an affordability advocate in his second term. Austin City Council, District 8: Paige Ellis..."

Run-Off Election Ticker: Getting a Li’l Testy!
Democracy itself is at stake. Just ask Frank Ward.
News Story  November 29, 2018, by Mike Clark-Madison, Sarah Marloff and Mary Tuma
"..."It is absolutely critical in a working democracy that we have a difference of opinion, constructive criticism, and the opportunity for an exchange of ideas," said Ward. "We are dangling on the precipice of ridding ourselves of that now." If there's no dissent, we need to decide "whether or not we should even meet as a Council." His opponent Paige Ellis pointedly distinguished herself as a "loud progressive" voice, vowing to protect environmentally sensitive areas (like Barton Springs) in District 8 while still managing economic growth and stressing her support for the city's lease agreement with Planned Parenthood...."

Election Coverage: Take Me to Your Run-Off
The next month in Council races
News Story  November 8, 2018, by Nina Hernandez, Sarah Marloff and Mary Tuma
"...Tensions ran high on Tuesday between Bobby Levin­ski, Rich DePalma, and Frank Ward, who emerged from early voting hoping to enter into a run-off with Paige Ellis, the environmental marketing specialist and political newcomer who led all of the aforementioned by seven points in the early vote. Little space was made as Election Day votes got tallied, though Ward, who took 30% of the E-Day vote, was able to push past Levinski, who had been second in early voting by only 0.5%...."

Fours on the Floor
Handicapping the next Council's coalitions on land use
News Story  October 18, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger
"...James Val­a­dez and Amit Motwani both sit closer to Renteria, though they've each expressed a desire to be more committed to compromise and looking at each vote individually than the incumbent, who reliably sides with his colleagues on the densification end. In D8, a Bobby Levinski win would net preservationists a true believer, though the race to replace Troxclair involves four candidates – and while Troxclair protégé Frank Ward may be more of the same, Rich DePalma and Paige Ellis both lean more toward a more progressive urbanism, rather than Troxclair's pro-business positions...."

"...Attorney Bobby Levinski thanked Troxclair for her service and wrote that "now is the time to bring a new direction" to the district. And marketing specialist Paige Ellis said in a statement that since there's no incumbent in the race, "our community has an opportunity to elect someone like myself who is not a city hall insider." Ellis' latest fundraising report shows $12,401 cash on hand, from 174 donations at an average of $58 per donation..."

Chronicle Endorsements: City Council
Who should sit on the next dais
News Story  October 18, 2018, by The Chronicle Editorial Board
"...The three remaining candidates are all relatively progressive and share in their passion for the district and interest in environmental policy and advocacy. Environ­ment­al marketing specialist Paige Ellis is fairly nascent in her political career, but she abounds with energy and we applaud the many hours she's spent block walking, hitting all 24 precincts in the district and 1,000 doors since August..."

Troxclair Won’t Seek Re-election for City Council
No incumbent will run in District 8
News Story  July 12, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Her exit opens the door for Bobby Levin­ski, Rich DePalma, or Paige Ellis to assume leadership of the district. The three all come to the campaign with varying credentials and years of City Hall experience, though their platforms as liberal environmentalists had led to speculation that their votes might cancel each other's out, and Troxclair would cruise to victory..."

District 8 City Council Pool Filling Up
Two new candidates file campaign treasurer appointments
News Story  January 4, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger
"...The new year is here, and in Austin that means five members of City Council – as well as the mayor – are up for re-election in November. Two new candidates have filed campaign treasurer appointments, the first official indication that they plan to challenge Ellen Troxclair for her seat in District 8: environmental marketing specialist Paige Ellis (who does not have any campaign materials online but said on Wednesday that she's in the "exploratory" stage of candidacy) and Bobby Levinski, a progressive, "pro-Austin" attorney who plans to run on a platform of local control – actual local control, he says, the kind that grants the "right of voters to govern themselves."..."

Election news to use at the polls
News Story  December 6, 2018, by Mike Clark-Madison, Michael King, Austin Sanders and Mary Tuma
"...You Might Want to Dial That Back a Bit: The lackadaisical turnout for the run-off isn't just embarrassing; it's "nothing short of an act of voter suppression," says Ed Espinoza, executive director of Prog­ress Texas and strategist/special friend to the Paige Ellis campaign in D8. He cites a reduced number of early voting sites compared to the run-offs in 2014 (14 vs..."
