 Carole Keeton Strayhorn , announced her candidacy for Mayor of Austin at a press conference at the offices of Bank Vue, whose founder Gabriel Krajicek, left, is a supporter, points out her husband in the audience. Strayhorn was Austin’s first woman mayor and served three terms from 1977-1983. She is ready to be a leader again and vows to be held accountable.  


Despite her diminutive size Strayhorn has always been able to stand tall in the public arena, and exhibits such while handling reporter’s questions following her announcement held at the Back Vue offices in the Riata Park area of north Austin.
