Housing All of Austin Forum (With Tovo) - Sunday, Nov. 6

Below is an announcement for a forum that’s being held tomorrow for people interested in attending. It’d be interesting to see how Tovo defends voting to continually block all new affordable housing and her policies that have led to the very housing crisis that the forum is about.


Conducted Continuously on Most Sundays For Over Sixty Years

Kathy Tovo, “Housing All of Austin”*

Austin has seen an unprecedented rise in the cost of housing, we have a shortage of affordable housing, and we are in the midst of a crisis regarding the number of individuals experiencing homelessness in our city. Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo will share some of the City’s efforts to address these challenging issues alongside our community partners.

Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo represents City Council District 9. She was first elected to the Austin City Council on June 18, 2011, and was re-elected and began serving on the first geographically elected City Council in January 2015. She was also selected by her peers to serve as Mayor Pro Tem.

Prior to taking office, she taught writing and interdisciplinary studies at the college level and worked at Humanities Texas, the state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. She holds a Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin and a B.A. with honors from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Tovo has a long history of neighborhood advocacy and served on many city and school district boards and task forces before running for office, including the Planning Commission, the CreateAustin task force, the Families and Children Task Force, and AISD’s Community Committee on Neighborhoods and Schools.

Her Council service includes chairing the Audit and FinanceCommittee and serving on the Planning and Neighborhoods, Open Space and Sustainability, and Health and Human Services Committees along with the Joint Subcommittee of the City of Austin, AISD, and Travis County and the Police Retirement Board.
