A seasoned journalist, Leslee Bassman has made a career out of reporting on local community
issues in western Travis County.

An attorney by trade, she transitioned into the newspaper business to keep citizens better informed as to government actions and events in their neighborhoods.

Bassman is a recipient of two National Newspaper Association awards and was the moderator of the 2017 Bee Cave City Council Candidate Forum as well as a presenter at the 2017 Barton
Creek Homeowners Association Annual Meeting.

She authored “The Rotary Club of Austin Celebrates One Hundred Years of Service Above Self,” and is a member of the Austin affiliate of the Alliance for Women in Media.

As a former editor of Community Impact Newspaper’s Lake Travis/Westlake edition and
reporter for Hill Country News, West Austin News and Four Points News, the native Texan has
enjoyed years of writing for community newspapers and currently is a contributing writer to the
Austin American-Statesman’s suburban editions.

The mother of two grown daughters, Bassman currently resides in the Lakeway area with her
husband, Rob, and Ella, a beloved, freckle-faced Setter mix.
