Troxclair announces state Senate run

Thursday, June 10, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

Former Austin City Council Member Ellen Troxclair has announced she’ll be running for Texas Senate District 24. The seat will be open as current state Sen. Dawn Buckingham (R-Lakeway) has declared that she’ll be running for land commissioner. “With the Biden Administration doing everything it can to force its radical leftist agenda through executive orders and acts of Congress, Texas needs proven, conservative fighters to hold the line at the state level,” Troxclair said in a statement to the press, announcing her candidacy. Troxclair previously served Council’s District 8 as a rare conservative voice on the dais. Since her departure, she has written a book, served as a senior fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation and director of Strategic Partnerships for Army Futures Command, and continued to manage a real estate business, among other things.

Ellen Troxclair is a board member of the Capital of Texas Media Foundation, the parent nonprofit of the Austin Monitor.
