Jennifer For Austin

Reimagining Our City Council

Jennifer Virden is a native Austinite, a lifelong District 10 resident, and a proud mom with a successful business career. She will fight to get Austin back on the track of affordability and revive our city’s image on the national stage.

A Note to District 10 Voters

The outcome of the November election for city council shows that District 10 voters do not agree with the Council's decisions to "defund the police," or to allow the homeless to camp in public spaces, or to enact the largest tax increase in Austin's history. Jennifer Virden will be the moderate, fiscally responsible voice on City Council that District 10 residents are looking for.

About

I’m Jennifer Virden, and I’m running to be the City Council member for District 10. Austin desperately needs a moderate, fiscally responsible voice, as well as diversity of thought, on our City Council. I believe that our City leaders should focus on providing core municipal services, rather than producing a “transformational change” of society.

I’m married to Keith, a Midwesterner from Iowa who got here as fast as he could, to pursue a career in high tech. We have two grown children – a son, 27, and a daughter, 25. They are both UT Austin McCombs School of Business graduates, and they’re successful business people here in Austin.

 

I’m an independent real estate broker and remodeling general contractor. My children and I all graduated from Doss Elementary School, Murchison Middle School, Anderson High School, UT Austin, and took a few classes at ACC along the way.

 

I didn’t just arrive here in Austin from out of town and decide to try running for City Council because I needed a job. I’m running for this representative position because I feel a sense of urgency to act now - I can no longer sit on the sidelines and just watch the decline of the city where I was born and raised. I feel it is my duty to do what I can to correct the current trajectory of Austin’s future.
