Notable quote: "I'll be a passionate advocate for neighborhoods and the environment and of single-member districts if we can ensure minority representation. Barton Springs is closed, but no political leader is responsible. A reason for abysmally low election turnouts is people don't feel a connection to one particular council member representing their area. I want Barton Springs in my district so I can protect it."
