Who should be the next mayor of Austin? That’s the question all of you will have to ask yourselves when you go to the polls in November.

Incumbent Steve Adler is running against several opponents who are trying to unseat him, including Laura Morrison, Gus Peña, Todd Phelps, Alexander Strenger, Alan Pease, and Travis Duncan.

Last week, several of these candidates shared their environmental platforms at the Climate and Energy Forum, cohosted by Solar Austin, 350 Austin, Earth Day Austin, and Shades of Green. During the forum, candidates went into detail on everything from Austin Energy to environmental justice. You can watch the entire forum with this video from Solar Austin.
