Candidate Runoff Conversations

Candidate Runoff Conversations

KLRU, Leadership Austin, The Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life, and KUT 90.5, Austin’s NPR Station invite you to Civic Summit: Candidate Runoff Conversations.

Join us in Studio 6A for 3 nights of conversations with runoff candidates, and newly elected council members, for Austin’s 10 City Council districts and Austin Mayor.

Only four of the 78 candidates who ran for Austin’s 10 new districts and for Mayor have ever served at City Hall. As our government shifts from an at large council to one with geographic representation, each person on the dais will be tasked with leading their region, while keeping a focus on the needs of the city as a whole. These conversations will focus on leadership values and qualities each person will bring to our rapidly changing city.
