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 have witnessed the growth of Austin, experiencing both the benefits and the problems that have resulted from that growth.  I made the decision to run for Austin City Council because I know that my experience in business, professional, community and educational organizations will enable me to better understand and resolve the issues that confront city government today.  Now that Austin will elect its City Council from single-member districts, I believe that a person with my fiscally conservative, socially moderate views can be elected and be a voice for the citizens of District 10.

This new exciting form of 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.

I've been blessed by being able to spend my life in Austin and in District 10 growing up with the wonderfully kind, smart, considerate, caring people of this area. 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 am running because I love Austin and want to help make sure that our kids and grandkids get to continue to enjoy Austin at its best.  I would be honored have your vote and be your voice on the Austin City Council.

The success of an elected official is the art of doing what everyone knows needs to be done.
