That smell... ROMANCE in the air!

Council Members Mike Martinez and Brewster McCracken are both engaged and plan to wed in November.

McCracken, 42, proposed to fiance Sarah Groos, 29, in front of the McNay Art Museum in her hometown of San Antonio.

Groos is a program manager at the LBJ Foundation. The two dated for a little more than 10 months.

It will be the second marriage for McCracken and the first for Groos. McCracken said he and Groos enjoy many similar interests but admits she isn’t a big fan of politics, which could be a challenge given McCracken’s almost certain run for mayor next year.

Politics is definitely in the blood of Martinez’s fiancée Lara Wendler, 41, who serves as chief of staff Texas Sen. John Whitmire, D-Houston. Martinez, 39, said he and Wendler met four years ago and have dated seriously since last spring.

He proposed in the living room of his East Austin home while his 10-year-old son captured the moment on camera. It will be a second marriage for Martinez and Wendler, a native Austinite.

“We feel really, really good about it, and we’re really happy,” Martinez said.

We at McBlogger would like to wish Councilman Martinez (or, as we like to call him, He Who Stands Up To Toby) all the best on his union. We are, to say the least, THRILLED for you!

As for Release The McCracken, we have only a question for his bride-to-be... REALLY? BREWSTER? REALLY??!?!?!

No kidding. He is a contrived House of Cards. Her daddy must have some serious money. That's McCrackens MO. He couldn't get elected County Nosepicker on his own. And, those hairplugs...please wake up, Austin and get him off the public tit.
