Councilmember Louis Mastrangelo
Louis was born and raised in Tucson, Ariz., and his career has moved him from there to Virginia, Georgia, twice to California, and three times to Texas where he chose to remain permanently after transferring to the greater Austin Area. After two years of searching, he settled in Lakeway and bought a home. He opened a consulting business so he’d never have to leave the city.
Louis has been active in local politics for over two years and served on the Zoning and Planning Commission (ZAPCO) prior to being elected councilmember.
When it comes to his Lakeway neighbors, Louis is very proactive in communicating directly to ensure awareness of current and coming issues and gather feedback. Then, armed with that knowledge take action and/or work with others to create viable solutions that will satisfy the most people possible. Please contact Louis at [email protected].
He is a firm believer in maintaining the quality of life that drew so many people to Lakeway. He believes the city needs to be proactive with regard to the changes growth is bringing to the community. He feels development may be inevitable, but we have the tools to manage it for the overall good of the community. He acknowledges that the demographic of Lakeway is changing and that all citizens should have representation. The spirit of the current Comprehensive Plan should remain our directive, and the new Comprehensive Plan should expand on that to take into account and prepare us for the inevitable expansion of Lakeway and our surrounding neighbors.
