Austin Interfaith takes account

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

Central Texas Interfaith has scheduled two of a planned four accountability sessions with Austin City Council and mayoral candidates as well as county, state and federal office candidates for the surrounding areas. The Austin session will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday at University United Methodist Church, with a separate session for Hays County candidates taking place the same day. Central Texas Interfaith brings together more than 50 religious and civic organizations representing more than 15,000 voters and works to educate its members in churches, schools and in neighborhood gatherings, including 40 planned block walks leading up to the Nov. 6 election. The accountability sessions will focus on issues such as affordability, education, health care, infrastructure and immigration, which were identified as priorities through small “house meetings” with more than 5,000 residents in the areas served by the group.
