RECA announces endorsements

Monday, October 20, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Real Estate Council of Austin has announced its picks for Austin’s City Council race, and though members didn’t settle on a mayoral candidate, the group did weigh in on several other races. As part of their endorsement process, 47 of the 78 candidates filled out questionnaires, which can be read here. Those who went on to win endorsements earned support from a super majority of the RECA board of directors. The stringent requirements were not met for candidates in Districts 2, 3 and 4. However, RECA’s website notes that it may endorse candidates in those races during a runoff election, if a super majority consensus is reached. As of now, RECA is endorsing DeWayne Lofton (District 1), Dan Buda (District 5), Pete Phillips (District 6), Becky Bray (District 8) and Chris Riley (District 9). RECA is also recommending Jeb Boyt and Jimmy Paver in the District 7 race and Mandy Dealey, Sheri Gallo and Robert Thomas in the District 10 race.
