Mayor Steve Adler was elected as Austin’s Mayor in December 2014, as part of the first 10-1 City Council represented by single member districts. As Mayor, he championed major initiatives to move Austin forward, including a drive to end veteran homelessness and encourage equitable and sustainable development. Knowing that Austin congestion costs over $1,000 annually per commuter, Mayor Adler declared 2016 to be the Year of Mobility. During the past year, he worked with the Texas Department of Transportation to improve mobility on I-35 and led Austin as a finalist in the Smart City Challenge for the US Department of Transportation. Before becoming Mayor, Steve Adler practiced civil rights law and founded and eminent domain law practice. He served as Chief of Staff and General Counsel for Texas State Senator Eliot Shapleigh, and volunteered through many civic and non-profit board – including the Board Chair of the Texas Tribune and Chair of Ballet Austin.
