Pool hires new policy adviser
Monday, January 31, 2022 by Jo Clifton
Cynthia Miller, longtime partner at Rindy Miller Media, is joining the staff of District 7 Council Member Leslie Pool. Today is her first day as senior policy adviser for Pool and Miller will be working from City Hall. Pool represents the city as a member of the Capital Metro Board of Directors, where Miller just completed a yearlong research project. Miller and her partner and husband, Dean Rindy, have handled communication and outreach plans together over the past 20 years, writing and producing TV, digital, print and radio advertising for clients throughout Texas. Miller told the Austin Monitor she was particularly proud of helping to elect Annise Parker as mayor of Houston in 2009, noting that Parker was the first openly gay mayor of a large U.S. city. Most of Miller’s work for Pool will be centered on communication and environmental and transportation policies. She will join Pool’s chief of staff, Louisa Brinsmade, in the office. Pool was reelected in 2020 and will serve through 2024.
