AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin City Council Member for District 10, Sheri Gallo, is heading to a Dec. 13 runoff election with Alison Alter.

Gallo released a statement Tuesday night saying she is honored to be the clear leader in the race for district 10. “Facing three challengers and tens of thousands of dollars in negative attacks for the past three months… We have a strong and commanding position in this field, and tomorrow we begin working twice as hard to win this runoff election on December 13.”

She continued, “I wish to personally thank our volunteers, supporters, and the voters. I will continue standing against tax and utility fee increases, fighting for a full 20 percent Homestead Exemption, and remaining laser-focused on affordability and transportation, while also working to protect our communities and improve our quality of life.”

Gallo thanked Rob Walker and Nicholas Virden for “running positive, issue-based campaigns, and have enjoyed getting to know both of them. I have won a runoff before and I am totally confident I will win this runoff too!”
