Three weeks before the Feb. 26th election, the three aldermanic candidates answered questions about a number of issues at an event organized by Austin Coming Together and South Austin Neighborhood Association.
The three candidates running for alderman – Zerlina Smith, Chris Taliaferro and Dwayne Truss – will answer questions at the nonpartisan event, which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5th at Michele Clark High School. The South Central Neighbors Association, Chicago Westside Branch of the NAACP and Austin Coming Together are co-sponsors.
Residents in the 29th Ward will have three candidates to choose from when early voting begins this week. First-term Ald. Chris Taliaferro is being challenged by Dwayne Truss and Zerlina A. Smith. A fourth candidate was knocked off the Feb. 26th ballot.
