Born in the Texas Hill Country, KT Musselman was raised with public service and concern for others as core values. A proud Longhorn, KT completed a degree in Government from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006.
Over the years, KT has worked on campaigns from the U.S. Senate to Constable, as well as passing local bonds to improve healthcare, transit, and education in Austin, Travis County, and other Central Texas jurisdictions. KT brings a mindset to his political work that by listening, organizing, and changing the nature of the electorate, we can elect public servants who will fight for all of their constituents, not just the privileged or vocal few. He has also worked for county elected officials and officeholders and knows that making our government more proactive and responsive to the needs of the community is paramount.
KT is a respected leader in the progressive community, having been awarded the Best of Austin Award from the Austin Chronicle nine times for his work with Burnt Orange Report, as well as being named one of the “Top 10 Most Influential Democrats in Texas” by Texas Influencers. He has served the community by sitting on the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan Task Force and the 2018 Austin Charter Review Commission. An Eagle Scout and Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow, KT lives in Northwest Austin with his two cats Loki and Luna. In his downtime KT enjoys hiking, trains and transit systems, and experiencing the local food, music, and cultural scenes.
