April 25 — Our first Candidate Forum in the City of Bastrop

We invite your attendance at our first candidate forum held in the City of Bastrop. However, if you cannot be present (especially to ask your questions), you can watch online at BTXN.TV.

Endorsed Non-partisan Independent Texans seal

Whether you are a city resident or not, if you live in Bastrop County, what the city of Bastrop decides impacts on all residents. This is especially true at a time when we are experiencing increased growth from residents fleeing Austin’s affordability crisis.

Independent Texans Bastrop City Council Candidate Forum Monday, April 25th at 6:30 pm Bastrop City Hall, 1311 Chestnut (bring a Bastrop City Voter with you, if ya can!)

There are two contested seats for Bastrop City Council. Place 1 is between Bill Peterson and Herb Goldsmith. Place 5 is between Kelly Gilleland and Deborah Jones. If you know the candidates, you might let them know you will be attending. All four have agreed to attend.

You may already know that city council elections in Texas are non-partisan races — just up our ally at Independent Texans.

We hope to see you on the 25th. Early voting begins on that very day — April 25th. Election Day is May 7th.

Call us at 512-535-0989 or email us at for more information.

PS This event will be streamed online for those who cannot be present.
