Politics is something that I try to avoid talking about with anyone, anywhere, anytime; especially city politics. I will say though that the City of Austin has a great bunch council members working with Mayor Lee Leffingwell. Every one from the City Manger to all six Council Members work together so well. The City of Austin meets at City Hall, 301 W. 2nd Street most Thursdays. All Council Members are elected by the citizens of Austin for three-year terms.
