Monitor, others take a turn with forums

Friday, August 29, 2014 by Michael Kanin

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. D3 is Sept. 15 at the North Door (this one is also part of the Monitor‘s Beers, Brains, and Betterment series, sponsored in part by Yellow Cab). D4 is Sept. 17 at the Marchesa Theater. 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. D8 is Sept. 29 at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter. D9 is Oct. 6 at KUT’s Studio 1A. D10 is Oct. 8 at the LCRA’s Red Bud Center. Our Mayor’s Forum is set for Oct. 15 at KUT’s Moody Auditorium.
