Republican Mackenzie Kelly Wins Austin City Council Runoff, Unseats Democrat Incumbent

Republican Mackenzie Kelly has defeated Democrat incumbent Jimmy Flannigan in Austin’s District 6 runoff Tuesday.

Kelly ran on restoring police funding and ending the permissive homeless camp ordinance.

Texas GOP Chairman Allen West said “the election of Mackenzie Kelly to the Austin City Council is evidence that even there the policies of defunding law enforcement, advancing wanton homelessness, and a socialist philosophy are reprehensible to Texans.”

Congratulations are pouring in.
