Leffingwell loses PEC race

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 by Jo Clifton

Former Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell came in second in a six-person race for a seat on the Pedernales Electric Cooperative Board of Directors this week. The winner was Travis Cox, the former chair of the Hays County Republican Party, who garnered 28 percent of the vote. Because there is no runoff, Cox was declared the winner of the District 4 seat. Leffingwell got 22 percent of the vote. Emily Pataki ran unopposed and was elected to the District 2 seat, while Mark Ekrut won the District 3 seat. Leffingwell noted that he has lived in Hays County for less than two years, adding, “I can no longer say I am undefeated.”
