What People Are Saying
I met Robert Thomas … a few years ago and was very impressed with not only his record of service but his unassuming demeanor. Please let me know how I can help Robert Thomas secure a seat on the City council - they'd be lucky to have him on board!
I am thrilled that you are running for public office. Austin is a great place. To me, it’s quite noble when people chose to work for the public.
Congratulations! We, and our friends will support your tireless effort to serve our community. We'll be honored to do a house event for your campaign.
Thanks Robert! Looking forward to supporting you again. Good luck! And thanks for running… we need good, solid representation.
Terri sent me your announcement for city council. I will pray that God leads you. When you win, remember you will represent men,women, children, elderly, homeless, and the mentally ill. These are the people who won't give you a penny to help your campaign. However, they will be the people that will need you the most. I am so excited for you.
Congratulations on running for District 10 and thank you for your service to the community. I look forward to assisting your campaign and wish you all the best.

Robert has 2020 vision, do you? We need to elect tireless community-based leaders who have 2020 vision. Leaders who can help us envision, develop, and execute a sound strategic plan for our city in 2020, 2030 and beyond. Austinites believe that our city is that radiant city on the hill, and we have good reason for that. Austin is that bright light, that beacon city in the Hill Country, but it will take vision, creativity, cooperation and hard work to maintain and enhance that brilliance. Traffic, drought and tax/affordability issues intensely act to dim our today, but our tomorrow can be much brighter with 2020 leadership. What do we want our community to look like, feel like, be like in 2020, 2030, and beyond? Can you see it? Robert can! This our opportunity. It is well past time to elect a leader who can envision and bring the community together to implement a long term strategic plan that takes into account ALL of Austin for ALL Austinites.
A New Voice
Our new geographic based City Council system will allow us to break the mold of electing City Hall insiders who are beholden to City Hall power brokers. For the first time, District 10 has the opportunity to elect a reasonable, collaborative and conscientious leader who is no stranger to “roll up your sleeves” community, school and neighborhood service in Austin, and in our District 10 in particular. Robert is uniquely qualified to represent our district because of his significant and broad-based legal, business, and community experience serving our District 10 community, and all of Austin.
Robert likes to remind his children that the only constant is change, and fearing change is counterproductive. For decades, Austin city government has been paralyzed by the fear of change, resulting in policies that have directly led to the current state of extreme traffic congestion, severe drought and a lack of affordability. Mark Twain once said, “20 years from now you will be disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the one’s you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Come on, Austin, let’s throw off the bowlines and constrained thinking of the past and elect Robert to City Council for meaningful change, or risk continued disappointment and rehashing the same old failed ideas.
