Zimmerman endorsed for re-election by Travis County Republicans

Posted on Oct 13, 2016 in Blog with comments
Austin City Councilman Don Zimmerman won a unanimous endorsement for his re-election campaign on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
 
The Travis County Republican Party Executive Committee voted for a second time to endorse the District 6 Councilman, who represents a large portion of Northwest Austin. The Travis GOP endorsed Zimmerman in his first run in 2014, under the new "10-1" plan. The 10-1 plan, which the Travis GOP strongly supported and helped to implement, replaced the old at-large system of representation with geographic-based City Council districts.

He was one of the few brave men who fought off dozens of armed attackers for 13 hours while our government abandoned the entire embassy staff as a lost cause. 
 
He's here to help us continue our fight to improve affordability and opportunity for all in Travis county. 
 
Many would rather that fight also be abandoned, but some things are too important. So we're not going to give up, and we're recruiting reinforcements.
