Austin Tech Alliance’s #TechTownHall series – an ongoing effort to connect Austin’s tech sector with our community’s elected officials – continues with Council Member Ellen Troxclair on November 8.
During our conversation with Council Member Troxclair, who represents District 8 in southwest Austin, we’ll discuss how City Council works, her priorities for the city, and how Austin’s tech community can best engage on neighborhood and policy issues.
