Program: Mayor Lee Leffingwell – Reflections on the Past, Suggestions for the Future

As a Navy officer, Delta pilot, Councilmember, and two-term Mayor, consistently Lee Leffingwell has been a steady, common-sense, trustworthy leader. He has presided over Austin’s record-setting economic and population growth, with resulting benefits and ongoing challenges. Mayor Leffingwell has generously agreed to share with the Forum his well-earned, in-depth perspective on Austin’s government and future. Whether running for mayor, for Council, or even if you’re just one of the few remaining non-candidate citizens in Austin, you can learn a lot from Lee’s lessons. This will be informative and fascinating!
