CoTMF welcomes new board members

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Austin Monitor is thrilled to announce that our parent company, the Capital of Texas Media Foundation, has two new board members. Most of our readers should be familiar with Sheryl Cole, who in 2006 became the first African-American woman elected to the Austin City Council, among her many accomplishments. After serving as mayor pro tem, Cole went on to practice law at the Cole Law Firm, where she specializes in government relations and public finance. We also would like to welcome Abby Rapoport to the board. Rapoport currently reports for The American Prospect, but you may also know her work as a political reporter for the Texas Observer.
