The East Austin Leadership Program held the second Travis County Judicial Forum at our Community Center in East Austin Tuesday night. Many citizens are unaware that judges are elected here, so this was a chance to meet the candidates and hear their views first hand.

On Tuesday the judges running for the Civil courts each spoke to why they were the best candidates and answered questions from the audience.  A big thanks to the candidates (in alphabetical order) Daniel Bradford, Cliff Brown, Amy Clark Meachum, Karen Sage, Eric Shepherd, Lupe Sosa, Tim Sulak and Yvonne Williams who were introduced by Southwest Key’s Valerie Joiner, and  moderated by Susana Almanza of PODER .

The event was well attended with local residents and voters from all over Austin who had the opportunity to meet and hear firsthand from the judicial candidates about their experience, legal approach and positions on issues.

Finally, a huge thank you to all of the dedicated East Austin Development Program members who made this event happen including Daniel Llanes, Sherron Williams, Sandra Ramos, Ann Del Llano, Shirley Riley, Lucien Banton, Joe Carr, Debbie Russell, Marva Overton, Juan Padilla and Valerie Joiner.

Candidates and audience are welcomed
