Sister: District 3 election “breaks my heart”

AUSTIN (KXAN) – The brother of  the East Austin family feud for District 3 declared victory. “Pio” Renteria defeated his sister, longtime environmental activist Susana Almanza, Tuesday. She did not take it well.

“Hurt my feelings and broke my heart. It’s going to take time to mend my heart cause it is broken,” said Almanza as she described how she would “give him hell” for “selling out” to big developers.

The winner, Sabino “Pio” Renteria had a more moderate tone.

“I want to make sure I reach out to all, not just East Austin, but all of District 3 and learn from what they want me to do,” said Renteria. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
