AUSTIN — Two new Austin City Council members took their oaths of office on Monday, Jan. 7.
The inauguration was open to the public.
Ellis provided the media with the following prepared remarks:
My name is Paige Ellis and I am honored to be your new Council Member for Southwest Austin. I started my activism on the steps of this city hall.
You have my promise to take care of a city that has taken such good care of me and so many others. And you have my promise to look out for those who are in need of care; such as our seniors, our kids, those who are getting on their feet, and of course our environment!
What I love about Southwest Austin is that our backyard is the Greenbelt, our garden is the Wildflower Center, and our pool is Barton Springs.
From Oak Hill to Travis Country...
From Lost Creek to Vintage Place...
From the Taco Deli on Spyglass...
To the Torchy’s in Circle C!
In Southwest Austin, we come from many different areas. But we all love this city, and we all look out for each other.
And as your Council Member I will be a representative for everyone in Southwest Austin.
I would like to thank:
My campaign team
My family, who are in from San Antonio.
And most of all - the voters of Southwest Austin.
Once again, it is my honor. Thank you.
