Celia Israel Long-time legislator plans to use creative solutions to tackle difficult problems in her city DAVID TAFFET | Senior Staff Seven candidates have filed to run for Austin mayor, but the race is coming down to just two of them — Kirk Watson and Celia Israel.

Watson is a former Austin mayor and former state senator who ran for attorney general in 2002 but was defeated by Greg Abbott.

Israel has been a state representative since 2014 and was a founder of the House LGBT Caucus. Though both are Democrats running in a non-partisan race, Israel is quick to distance herself from her opponent: “Watson is running a status quo, Chamber of Commerce, good ol’ boy race,” Israel said.
