Good Politics comes to Texas

Friday, July 27, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

A new political advocacy group and event series is attempting to break down the barriers that keep younger voters from becoming involved in local elections and other issues. The just-formed Good Politics will hold its kickoff event Aug. 23 at Native Hostel with appearances from Texas congressional candidates Joseph Kopser and Julie Oliver. The stated goal of the group is to encourage more “good people” to run for elected office or become otherwise involved in the political process. “Politics are unavoidable, and the only reason we hate professional politics … is that we want our political leaders to set a better example,” reads a portion of the introductory post on Medium announcing the group’s formation. Tickets for the launch event are available here.
