January Congressional Candidate Forums

Local campaigns are now underway, with Early Voting starting on February 19. Of particular significance is Texas' 16th Congressional District race, which features high-profile candidates, of which one will face the daunting task of representing El Paso during these turbulent times in Washington DC.

So far the issues of immigration reform, climate change, renewable energy, labor issues, health care, foreign and economic policy, and education have largely been overlooked in favor of political gamesmanship.  

However, the opportunity to interact with grassroots advocates at our community-based forums will provide the candidates insight to local efforts, and help them formulate legislation that best serves all members of our local and global community.
