Election results now official
Thursday, December 20, 2018 by Jo Clifton
Austin City Council held a meeting, took an important step and adjourned – all within three minutes on Wednesday. It was the special called meeting to canvass the results of the Dec. 11 runoff in which Natasha Harper-Madison, Pio Renteria and Paige Ellis were elected to serve as the Council members for Districts 1, 3 and 8, respectively. Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo chaired the meeting and Council members Ora Houston, Leslie Pool, Jimmy Flannigan, Delia Garza and Ann Kitchen attended. There was no discussion and a very small audience that included Tovo’s daughter. The term of office for each Council member begins Jan. 6, with the inauguration the following day.
