Join The Texas Tribune at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in person at Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches in East Austin for a conversation with Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown. Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith will moderate.
They’ll discuss what the pandemic has meant for local control in Travis County and they’ll answer your questions (taken in advance and live in person). The conversation will also be available to view on demand starting Friday, Nov. 19, at texastribune.org/events.
Adler has been mayor of Austin since 2015. He has represented Austin in the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda and the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. He is also a board member of the National Conference of Democratic Mayors. Previously, Adler served as chief of staff to former state Sen. Eliot Shapleigh, practiced civil rights law and sat on the boards of Ballet Austin and The Texas Tribune.
Brown was elected to the Travis County Commissioners Court in 2020. Previously, he served as finance director and senior adviser to former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s U.S. Senate campaign and as a campaign manager for U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett. Brown also helped create The Sobering Center-Austin.
This conversation is presented by Loewy Law Firm and supported by CAMMACK & STRONG, P.C.
