Mayor Steve Adler was elected Austin’s 52nd mayor in December of 2014.  Mayor Adler has lived in Austin for nearly four decades. He attended Princeton and the University of Texas Law School on scholarships, and he was the first in his family to graduate from college along with his brother.

After moving to Austin and working his way through law school at UT, Mayor Adler practiced civil rights law for nearly a decade. He also founded a successful eminent domain law practice representing landowners that he left after his election as Mayor.

Mayor Adler also spent almost ten years as chief of staff and general counsel for State Senator Eliot Shapleigh, working primarily of school finance, equity, and access issues.

Mayor Adler has been deeply involved, and even chaired, many Austin civic and non-profit institutions over the past twenty years.

Together with his wife Diane Land, Mayor Adler is the proud father of three daughters.
