Christine Sederquist was sworn in as Leander's new mayor May 20 surrounded by former and current elected officials including Mayor Chris Fielder, former Mayor John Cowman, Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell and state Rep. John Bucy III.

“The wisdom of those who have gone here before is invaluable, but it still won’t tell me exactly what’s going to happen,” Sederquist said.

Sederquist won 51.76% of votes in the May 1 election as the youngest and second female mayor in Leander. Sederquist previously served one term as the Place 4 council member.

Becki Ross was also sworn in as the Place 6 council member May 20. Ross won the seat with 51.44% of votes. Ross previously served on the city's planning and zoning board since 2018.

"I am thrilled to see where this city goes over the next few years," Ross said. "We're just going to keep continuing to make Leander better."
