Former Mayor Cooksey endorses Cole
Thursday, October 30, 2014 by Jo Clifton
Former Austin Mayor Frank Cooksey (1985-88) has endorsed Sheryl Cole to lead the new 10-1 Council. Cooksey is just the latest in a series of mayors to endorse in this hard-fought race. Mayor Lee Leffingwell endorsed Steve Adler on Monday, and former mayors Gus Garcia and Will Wynn have endorsed Mike Martinez. Cooksey will join Cole at a coffee meetup for supporters at 10 a.m. today at Chez Zee, 5406 Balcones Drive. St. Edwards University’s student newspaper, Hilltop Views, has announced endorsements in the mayor’s race and two Council district races. Mike Martinez won the nod for mayor. Like The Daily Texan, Hilltop Views chose Chris Riley as the District 9 candidate best suited to represent student positions. And in District 3, which surrounds St. Ed’s, the editorial board endorsed Susana Almanza.
