Donate to Paige Ellis for City Council

Welcome to my donation page! I am exploring a run for Austin City Council District 8. I have lived in Southwest Austin for nearly a decade and would love to get to know more about you and the issues you care about. Please feel free to send me a message! And if you’re feeling the 2018 Blue Wave, donate $20.18!


I have been an activist and financial supporter of progressive causes for nearly a decade. I work as a Marketing and Public Involvement Specialist for an Austin-based environmental consulting firm and hold a degree in sociology from the University of Texas at San Antonio.


My community involvement includes work with the Texas Book Festival First Edition Literary Gala from 2011 to 2014, and with Keep Austin Beautiful from 2016 to present. I am also a financial supporter of the Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, the Barton Springs Conservancy, the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy, The Trail Foundation, and KLRU.


I am a runner and have completed the Statesman Cap10k for seven consecutive years, as well as the Austin Marathon, Austin Half Marathon, the Sunshine Run 10k, and the Trail Roots Switchback 10k (among others).


I look forward to chatting with you!


Note: District 8 covers the Southwest Austin area and includes the communities around the Barton Creek Mall, the Bluffington/Stratford neighborhood, Circle C, Lost Creek, Maple Run, Oak Hill, Sendera, Southwest Parkway, the Shady Hollow area, Spyglass, and Zilker Park. If you are unfamiliar with the neighborhood names, a general way to imagine the district is that the north border is the river, the south border is Hays county, it borders Westlake to the West, and the neighborhoods adjoining both sides of MOPAC to the east.
