October 2012 ENGAGE - Politics from City to Nation

This morning was the first ENGAGE breakfast of the 2012-13 series, and we gathered on the Dell Hall Stage at the Long Center for the Performing Arts to discuss the upcoming election and its impact on Central Texas.

UPDATE I: Read a recap of the event from Community Impact News

This breakfast was also a KXAN Town Hall, which was streamed live online and which will be broadcast on the KXAN network beginning at 7:00 pm Friday, October 19. We'll be updating this post with recaps and media coverage as it becomes available, but in the meantime we have the full audio podcast of the event below:

Don't forget! Election Day is November 6 and early voting in Travis County begins October 22. Take a look at the City of Austin's Charter Propositions page or the Austin League of Women Voters' ballot guide for a primer on the wide range of initiatives this election is covering.

Many thanks to our panel, moderators, sponsors and partners for a great event and what is sure to be another important and informative ENGAGE Breakfast Series. Join us for our next breakfast Wednesday, November 14 as we discuss Central Texas's growing veteran population and how our region is supporting them and their families.

We hope to see you there!
