Alison Maguire

Denton City Council, District 4, TX

Alison is a second-generation public school teacher, a mom, and a progressive running for City Council in Denton, Texas.

As a teacher, Alison found herself frustrated trying to meet the educational needs of students who were facing food and housing insecurity. After making the difficult decision to leave the classroom, she decided to dedicate her time to volunteering on campaigns that fought to improve conditions for folks like her students, such as Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign.

Alison believes that housing, healthcare, and food are human rights. If elected, Alison will prioritize affordable housing, responsible development, environmental sustainability, and public health. She recognizes that the wellbeing of each Denton resident is bound up with the wellbeing of the community at-large, and she believes that every Denton resident deserves a voice in City Hall.

Alison, her husband Sean, and their two dogs became Dentonites seven years ago. They have since welcomed two children, Thomas and Eleanor, and are so grateful for a vibrant, engaged, and caring community in which to raise them.
