AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Mayor Steve Adler will deliver the State of the City Address on Wednesday evening at Austin City Hall.
The event will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. inside City Council Chambers at 301 W. Second St. Doors open at 4 p.m. and guests are encouraged to arrive early. Adler will discuss a variety of topics related to the City of Austin in the annual speech.
His State of the City Address comes as the Texas legislature is hoping to reverse many of Austin’s policies: implementing a sick pay requirement, contracting with Planned Parenthood, and making an agreement with Major League Soccer to bring a team to Austin.
In an interview with KXAN, Adler said much of the work of the 140-day legislative session was an “attack” on local government and large cities. Those cities are often ran by Democrat Mayors and City Councilmembers while Republicans hold the the leadership positions in the state capitol.
Adler, who has been Mayor since 2015, is freshly back from his trip to South Bend, Indiana, where he introduced Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg at a campaign event on Sunday.
You can reserve free tickets to the SOCA, as they are available, here. Free parking will be available in the City Hall garage. TV screens and chairs will also be available outside of the Council Chambers.
