LWV Austin Area Kickoff Meeting = Big Success

On Sunday September 7, about one hundred people attended the annual kickoff meeting for the League of Women Voters Austin Area. The highlight of the meeting was the presentation of Texas Tribune Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Evan Smith. He offered his observations on the state of the Texas political scene – from primaries to political parties and their platforms to matters that may influence voter turnout like photo ID, gender issues, and money in elections. Smith provided his perspectives from his unique position with the Tribune and previously as editor of Texas Monthly for a decade and PBS host of “Overheard with Evan Smith.”
