Bobby Levinski

Working for People, Not Special Interests

Bobby Levinski has been actively involved in City policy since 2005. In that time, he has worked as a policy advisor for three Austin City Council Members:  Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo,  Council Member Laura Morrison, and Council Member Jennifer Kim

Bobby's work has focused on prioritizing the needs of Austin's families, such as making Austin more affordable, protecting our neighborhoods, addressing traffic congestion, creating more parkland and open space, and increasing governmental transparency and accountability. 

He played a key role in requiring developers to pay more infrastructure costs to make growth pay for itself. He is a strong advocate for property tax reform, to close corporate loopholes and reduce the burden on homeowners and renters. Over the years, he has identified millions in the city budget earmarked for corporate tax giveaways and helped shift those funds to address basic needs.

Bobby aims to protect what is special about Southwest Austin. He was part of the negotiations to transfer development rights so AISD could expand schools in Southwest Austin. He’s been a strong advocate for more fire stations and parks, including a new Southwest District Park. And, he's been a long-time ally of the Fix290 Coalition, working for non-toll and neighborhood friendly road improvements at the “Y” in Oak Hill.

Bobby is currently an attorney for the Save Our Springs Alliance, an environmental non-profit organization, working to preserve and conserve Austin’s natural resources. He earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) from The University of Texas School of Law, and he also has a bachelor's degree in Economics and Urban Studies from UT.

In his spare time, Bobby plays and coaches soccer. He once served as the Head Coach for the girls’ soccer program at St. Michael’s Catholic High School.
