Councilmember Kristin Stevens Announces She will Seek Re-election for Place 5 Seat on the Round Rock City Council
ROUND ROCK, TX – Today, Councilmember Kristin Stevens announced plans to seek re-election to her Place 5 seat on the Round Rock City Council. She overwhelmingly won her seat with 61% of the votes cast in the May 2021 election. Councilmember Stevens will host a kickoff event in early January where she will formally launch her re-election campaign.
“I have been proud to call Round Rock my home for over 40 years and honored to help lead this community through some critical decisions over the last few years,” Councilmember Stevens said. “Round Rock is a special place because of its People. I want to continue to make Round Rock a place where people want to Live, Work, and Raise their families. Despite the unprecedented growth that Round Rock has seen over the past decade, we continue to remain one of the safest cities in America and maintain one of the lowest tax rates in Central Texas, as well as one of the lowest rates in Texas among cities of comparable size. I am dedicated to ensuring that we continue to be responsible stewards of our citizens’ dollars by staying focused on providing high value core services-public safety, water and transportation. I want to continue to focus on water and transportation while also ensuring that our police and fire departments have the equipment and training needed to keep our community and our residents safe. If we can stay focused on these issues we will continue to be that special place that brought my family here over 40 years ago.”
