We’ve heard a lot about the rural-urban divide in politics. At this meeting, which took place on Saturday, February 3 at the Old Quarry Library, we explored the similarities and differences among their priorities, on topics ranging from criminal justice and gun control to high-speed internet connectivity and traffic congestion.
The panel consisted of several community leaders from Central Texas who helped us explore this “rural-urban divide.” The panel members:
- Brigid Shea, Travis County Commissioner, Precinct 2
- Michelle Ryan, community activist from Bastrop
- Mike Heath, Pflugerville city council member, Place 5
The discussion was moderated by Mike Ignatowski.
