Public Safety Commission gets some new faces

Tuesday, August 4, 2020 by Jessi Devenyns

After coming back from summer recess in July, the Public Safety Commission began its August meeting with no chair and a new face on the dais. Former commission Chair Meghan Hollis resigned due to a new position she took working for the state Legislature. “I was so honored to serve as chair of this body,” she said in a statement read by Rebecca Webber. To replace Hollis, the commission unanimously voted to have Rebecca Gonzales step into the role of commission chair beginning at the September meeting. In addition to a new chair, the commission also welcomed Rocky Lane to its ranks. Lane comes from a background as a paramedic in Austin and is the current board chair for the Transgender Education Network of Texas, where he told commissioners he has gained experience working and negotiating with the city.
