August 24, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Austin Tech Alliance’s #TechTownHall series – an ongoing effort to connect Austin’s tech sector with our community’s elected officials – continues with Austin Mayor Steve Adler on August 24.
During our conversation with Mayor Adler, we’ll discuss ongoing challenges facing Austin, his priorities for the city, and how Austin’s tech community can best engage on neighborhood and policy issues. As with any town hall, you’ll also have an opportunity to ask Mayor Adler questions about issues that matter to you.
About Mayor Adler: Steve Adler was elected Austin’s 52nd Mayor in December 2014. As the Mayor of the City’s historic new 10-1 Council, Mayor Adler plans to lead Austin’s government to a new level of inclusive civic engagement between residents and their elected officials.
Mayor Adler, along with his brother, were the first in their family to graduate from college. After completing his undergraduate studies at Princeton, Mayor Adler moved to Austin to work his way through law school at The University of Texas. Like many others, he fell in love with Austin and has made it his home for nearly four decades.
Mayor Adler practiced civil rights law for many years, and later founded a successful eminent domain law practice representing landowners. Mayor Adler also served nearly ten years as Chief of Staff and General Counsel for Texas State Senator Eliot Shapleigh, working primarily on school finance, equity and access issues. Mayor Adler has been deeply involved with and chaired many Austin civic and nonprofit institutions over the past twenty years.
