The League of Women Voters (LWVAA) invites members and the public to its Fall Kickoff event from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m., Sunday, September 7 in the Trinity United Methodist Church Sanctuary on 4001 Speedway, Austin, 78751. Hear about planned LWVAA activities for the 2014-15 year and get involved.
Evan Smith, CEO and editor-in-chief of the Texas Tribune, will speak about the state of the political scene in Texas – covering such topics as the 2014 primary election results, the current state of the political parties in Texas, whether political platforms influence voters’ decisions, and other matters that may impact voter turnout such as photo ID, gender issues, and money in elections.
Evan Smith spent more than a decade as editor of the Texas Monthly, co-founded the Texas Tribune (a nonprofit, non-partisan public media organization), and hosts “Overheard with Evan Smith,” a weekly interview program that airs on PBS stations across the country.
