I am so honored to be the elected representative of District 10 on the Austin City Council. It has been a grass-roots group effort and I couldn't have made it without you. Thank you, everyone. I look forward to a new council and a new way forward and working with our mayor-elect Steve Adler.

These Austin leaders have chosen Sheri Gallo as the best choice to represent District 10 on the Austin City Council
- As a resident of District 10 for over 50 years, I have been involved as a successful businesswoman and civic leader throughout the Austin community my entire adult life. I am passionate about our wonderful city and the potential it has to continue to be the best place to live in our country.
- I have witnessed the growth of Austin, experiencing both the benefits and the problems that have resulted from that growth. I think priorities need to change with our new city government, beginning with a new emphasis on the needs of our neighborhoods, not the needs of downtown or tourists.
- Our Austin city government will require Council members who are leaders willing to work together, build consensus, problem solve in constructive ways, and make common sense decisions. I have a proven record of leadership in the Austin business and non-profit community and am known for making tough decisions and getting things done.
- I believe that there should be less government, not more, and that our government should operate efficiently and spend our tax dollars wisely. The new Council should take its time to deliberate about Austin's priorities and not rush into new spending plans or new rail bond proposals.
- I love Austin and want to help make sure that our kids and grandkids get to continue to enjoy Austin at its best.
The success of an elected official is the art of doing what everyone knows needs to be done.
