Austin Legislators Prepare to Redraw Their Own Districts -- While Doing Business as Usual
Rep. Terry Keel, R-AustinHouse District 47 (Austin)
Capitol Office: E2.208
Capitol Phone: 512/463-0652
The former deputy sheriff often focuses on criminal justice issues and transportation -- with a particular interest in Capital Metro. He has openly discussed the necessity of redrawing district lines in a way that would move Republicans out of his strongly Republican district and into one of the more heavily Democratic districts adjacent to his.
Keel did not answer phone calls requesting an interview.
He has served in the Legislature since 1997 and has filed 12 bills so far this session.
