Please share your experience and involvement in the Democratic Party in Travis County.

Sabino “Pio” Renteria

City Council, District 3


Before my time on Council, I served as a Travis County Democratic Precinct Chair for Precinct 438 in the East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood and was a National Delegate for President Barack Obama. I have worked on and volunteered on a number of progressive campaigns including for Congressman Lloyd Doggett, Representative Eddie Rodriguez, Mayor Gus Garcia, and Council Member John Treviño to name a few. I’ve also worked on issue campaigns including the ballot initiatives that created the Capital Metropolitan Transit Authority and the Travis County Healthcare District.

I’m proud to have the endorsement of progressive leaders in Travis County, including Congressman Lloyd Doggett, Senator Kirk Watson, Representatives Eliot Naishtat and Eddie Rodriguez, Mayors Steve Adler and Gus Garcia, Mayor Pro Tem (and soon-to-be State Representative) Sheryl Cole, Council Members Greg Casar, Delia Garza, Mike Martinez, Chris Riley, and AISD Trustees Jayme Mathias and Paul Saldaña.
