Shea draws an opponent in March primary

Thursday, September 30, 2021 by Jo Clifton

Travis County Commissioner Precinct 2 Brigid Shea has served in that position since she was first elected in 2015, and has already indicated that she intends to run again in next March’s Democratic primary. Shea helped found the Save Our Springs Alliance and served one term on Austin City Council. On Wednesday, Bob Libal, a criminal justice and immigration reform advocate, announced that he too would be running for the Precinct 2 seat. Libal is the former executive director of Grassroots Leadership. His main focus appears to be on jails and reforms to incarceration.
