Cohen endorses Renteria

Friday, December 7, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

After some back and forth, former District 3 candidate Jessica Cohen formally endorsed incumbent City Council Member Pio Renteria yesterday. In a statement to the press, she explained, “Since the election I have spoken at length with Pio and his team to discuss the important issues facing our district and I’m confident that in this runoff Pio is the right choice. I believe Pio is the only candidate that will represent every part of District 3. He’s the only candidate capable and ready to tackle District 3’s biggest challenges. His history as an activist, community leader and life-long Austinite makes him my choice for our district.” Cohen, who earned 8.88 percent of the vote in November, joins former candidate Amit Motwani, who won 7.76 percent of the vote, in endorsing Renteria.
