How to Be a Better Austin Citizen in 2020
The News staff takes to KOOP to discuss ways to be more civic-minded
3:30PM, Fri. Jan. 10, 2020
The new year is still new enough that you probably haven't lost your resolve to be a better version of yourself in 2020. But maybe you need some direction?
In this week's "Vision 2020" issue, we explored all sorts of things to look forward to this year – new books by Austin authors, Beethoven at 250 celebrations, a film fest calendar, queer parties, restaurant openings, day trips worth taking, to name a few.
In the News section, we endeavor to give Austinites the tools to become a better, more informed citizen, with a month-by-month guide to a hugely important election year, plus local ways to make an impact, including the upcoming PIT Count, the census, and the many commissions, boards, task forces, and intergovernmental bodies that rely on volunteers to function. On this week's The Austin Chronicle Show, News staff Mike Clark-Madison, Sarah Marloff, and Austin Sanders explore these topics at length. 2020 – let's get civic-minded, y'all.
Host: Mike Clark-Madison. Guests: Sarah Marloff, Austin Sanders. Engineer: Evan Hearn. Theme music: Kevin Curtin and Jonas Wilson.
Catch The Austin Chronicle Show Fridays, 3pm, on KOOP 91.7 FM.
