Bray launches campaign for Precinct 3

Monday, December 9, 2019 by Jo Clifton

Republican Rebecca Bray, an engineer and transportation planner, has announced plans to run for Travis County commissioner of Precinct 3. If she succeeds, she will replace retiring Commissioner Gerald Daugherty, who announced last week that he did not intend to run again. Daugherty immediately endorsed Bray, the only Republican to announce her candidacy for that seat so far. In 2014, Bray ran for the District 8 Council seat, which Ellen Troxclair won. Bray’s civic involvement includes the Real Estate Council of Austin and the Capital Area Transportation Coalition. At least three Democrats are running for the Democratic nomination in the March primary. They include former state Rep. Valinda Bolton; Ann Howard, founding executive director of the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition; and Sheri Soltes, a former attorney and advocate for animals. The filing deadline is today.
