Austin Police Association PAC Statement of Disappointment with Ellen Troxclair

Austin, TX – The Austin Police Association PAC today released the poll results of a Texas House District 19 Republican primary match-up that shows police officer and conservative Justin Berry leading former Austin City Council member Ellen Troxclair by a nearly 2 to 1 margin. The October 1 poll conducted on the TX HD-19 map under H2101, which takes in Burnet, Gillespie, Blanco, and Kendall Counties along with regions of western Travis County, surveyed historic Republican Primary voters only with over 850 responses. The poll revealed the following: Overview:

  • In the Named Ballot: Berry 19.4%, Troxclair 9.5%, 71.1% Undecided

  • Troxclair Image: 22.4% favorable, 4.8% unfavorable

  • Berry Image: 31.8% favorable, 5.7% unfavorable

Detailed Findings:

  • Berry's favorable name-ID is over twice that of Troxclair’s in Travis County

  • Berry outperforms Troxclair approximately 2:1 in Travis County

  • Troxclair underperforms despite heavily campaigning for Texas Senate since early June

Before redistricting maps were released, Troxclair campaigned for four months for a vacated Texas Senate seat. At that time, she recorded a video with a strong endorsement of Justin Berry for Texas House. After the Senate maps were not to Troxclair’s liking, she has switched to run for Texas House against Berry. “We are disappointed by Mrs. Troxclair. But it’s not the first time she’s let us down. In December 2018, during an early defund police effort, then Austin Councilmember Troxclair cut a deal with the far-left council and walked out of a vote critical to securing police funding,” said Ken Casaday, Austin Police Association President. “We are fully behind Justin Berry and encourage all Republicans to unite behind a conservative leader who keeps their word.” ##30##
