2018 Austin Candidate Forums & Questionnaires

Alongside 350 Austin, Earth Day Austin, and Shades of Green, we are hosting three candidate forums in October 2018 so that candidates running for Austin mayor and city council can speak to Austinites about their climate change and energy priorities. In addition to asking our questions, we will accept questions from the audience, so these will be great opportunities to ask your questions related to climate change or energy policy.

Candidates were required to respond to a written questionnaire in order to participate—view them below.
