Mayor Lee Leffingwell is taking nothing for granted in his re-election bid.
Despite a lack of formidable opposition, Austin’s incumbent mayor announced two high profile, if unorthodox, endorsements this weekend. His campaign shares the details:
AUSTIN, TX – Mayor Lee Leffingwell is excited to announce today that he has been endorsed by two of Austin’s favorite adopted sons – country music legend Willie Nelson and seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.
“I love Austin and I think Mayor Leffingwell has done a real good job of helping keep it a special place,” said Nelson. “I’m proud to give him my endorsement.”
“Mayor Leffingwell has been a strong leader and I think he deserves another term,” said Armstrong. “I hope my fellow Austinites will join me in supporting him for re-election.”
Austin’s municipal election is set for May 12.
