KLRU and Austin Urban Land Institute invite you to Civic Summit: Mayoral Candidate Forum. Jennifer Stayton – the host of Morning Edition on KUT 90.5, Austin’s NPR station – will moderate the discussion around the topics of transportation and governance. Participating in the debate will be: Steve Adler, Mayor Pro Tem Sheryl Cole, Councilman Mike Martinez, Todd Phelps and Randall Stephens.
Austin voters will elect 10 council members in November from 10 new geographic districts. They’ll also elect a new mayor, the only person on the dais tasked with governing the city as a whole. KLRU and the Austin Urban Land Institute will host one of the first mayoral debates of the election cycle, just days after filing closes. We’ll hear each candidate’s plan to move Austin forward and find out how each will navigate a new council structure with 10 distinct points of view.
This event will be recorded and will air on KLRU August 28 at 8 pm.
