Troxclair expecting second baby
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 by Jo Clifton
District 8 Council Member Ellen Troxclair has had a happy secret for several months, but now it has become impossible to hide and she said the Austin Monitor could let everyone in on the news. Troxclair and her husband, Caleb, are expecting their second child in early April. Their first child, Juliette, came along in 2016. Troxclair says she and her husband do not know the gender of the baby that’s coming, but that’s the way they like it. Elected with a very slim margin in 2014, Troxclair has been collecting money for her re-election ever since a federal judge ruled that Austin’s campaign finance laws regulating when money can be donated to candidates were illegal. She will just have a couple of months with the baby before she needs to get out on the campaign trail in earnest.
