FAN begins Council candidate AMAs

Friday, September 23, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Today, the Friends of Austin Neighborhoods (FAN) launches a series of City Council candidate AMA forums on Reddit. According to a press release from FAN, “Neighbors throughout the city will submit questions to the candidates, similar to a press conference. Each forum will last one hour, but ongoing audience comments are allowed for post­debate commentary and analysis. Candidates will use their discretion to select which questions to answer, but participants can vote on any question or answer in the forum as a way to provide instant feedback on which issues are most important to them. Each forum will be publicly viewable in perpetuity (as long as Reddit.com keeps the content available), and commenting will be closed after six months.” The fun starts today at 2 p.m. with District 7 candidates. The District 6 AMA will take place Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 2 p.m.; followed by District 2 on Friday, Sept. 30 at 12 p.m.; then District 4 on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 2 p.m.; and, finally, District 10 on Monday, Oct. 10, at 2 p.m.Tune in here during those times, and let the fun begin.
