Elections are coming up and it’s critically important that we not only vote, but that we make informed votes. Do you know where the candidates running for Austin mayor and city council stand on important climate change and energy issues? What do they see as the problems and what solutions are they proposing?
If you’re not sure, don’t worry—there’s still time to get the information you need to make an informed decision on Election Day.
