Monitor, others take a turn with forums
The Monitor and four media partners — KUT, KXAN, Univision and the Austin Chronicle — will add to the extreme level of political discussion with a series of their own public candidate forums. The outlets will go into each of the city’s 10 districts between Sept. 8 and Oct. 8. They will also host a mayoral tilt on Oct. 15. RSVP pages are now up for all of the events: D1 is Sept. 8 at the Wesley United Methodist Church. D2 is Sept. 10 at the Dove Springs Rec Center.

D5 is Sept. 22 at Austin Community College’s South Austin Campus. D6 is Sept. 23 at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline. D7 is Oct. 2 at the Alamo Drafthouse Village.
