Join us as a member of the live studio audience for an environmental forum featuring 2014 candidates for Travis County Judge and Travis County Commissioner on Friday, February 7th, 5:30pm-7:30pm. Texas Green Network is hosting the live event at the Vortex Theater, to be recorded for television and radio rebroadcast.

Protecting the environment is an important issue for Central Texas residents and necessarily on the minds of candidates running for office in Travis County, the mostly urban home of progressive Austin, TX. Early voting for Travis County Judge and Commissioner Seats starts on February 18th.

The forum will start promptly at 6:00pm with County Commissioner candidates 6:00pm-6:45pm and County Judge candidates from 6:45pm-7:30pm. Questions will rotate in a round-robin conversation. The candidates will be asked questions on environmental and sustainability issues with questions provided by and representing a variety of local organizations.

Join us at 5:30pm and visit The Butterfly Bar (adjacent to the theater), a green, eco-friendly, local business that is cultivating a large butterfly-oriented landscaping onsite. Most weeknights you will stumble upon movies under the stars, trivia night, tap dance lessons or live jazz music. It has a vintage appeal and an offering of dance events, theme parties, fundraisers, and special performances.

Seating will be limited for this forum, please reserve a seat at
