LWV plans runoff candidate forum
Now that the herd has been thinned out from 78 candidates to a more manageable number, the Austin Area League of Women Voters plans a forum Nov. 21 for all eight of the Council and Mayoral runoffs. The forum will be held in the new City Council Chambers at City Hall and will run from 6 to 10 p.m. The questions, which will not be given to candidates ahead of time, will be developed by the League of Women Voters. The event is actually four forums, with Districts 4 and 7 set from 6 to 6:30 p.m.; Districts 6 and 10 from 6:45 to 7:15 p.m.; Districts 1 and 3 from 7:30 to 8 p.m.; District 9 from 8:15 to 8:45 p.m. and the Mayor candidates from 9 to 9:45 p.m. The forums will be broadcast live on the city’s TV channel, ATXN-TV.
