Come out and meet the candidates running for City Council District 4 (which covers the north half of the Northfield Neighborhood). The October 4th Candidate Forum for District 4 is being hosted by all of the neighborhoods in District 4 at 2:00 p.m., and will be held at Lanier High School.
All neighborhood associations in District 4 have financially supported the forum, or have had volunteers give their time to plan the forum. The neighborhoods included in District 4 are: Georgian Acres, Heritage Hills, Highland, North Austin Civic Association, North Lamar Contact Team, North Loop, Northfield, Skyview, Windsor Hills, Windsor Park.
This candidate forum will focus on the fact that District 4 is a Hispanic Opportunity District, that District 4 has the lowest percentage of voters compared to all other districts, and that the issues of District 4 must serve as a focus above all else. There will be simultaneous Spanish/English bilingual translation provided to the audience , and voter registrars at the forum. We are inviting any community partners to help educate the voters outside of the forum as well.
The District 4 survey results showed that our top three concerns are crime, transportation, and affordability, in that order. The survey results are posted to http://www.austindistrict4.org. There are 1000 word limit candidate bios submitted by the candidates available on the site, and also the finalized candidate forum questionnaire.
