Schedule your virtual filming for your Candidate Statement

From September 16, 2020 to September 28, 2020, ATXN will record each City Council candidate's five-minute personal campaign statement for broadcast on ATXN and on demand at www.atxn.tv. 

Statements will be filmed virtually using WebEx that the City of Austin will provide you a link and instructions for. The ATXN team will assist you with audio, lighting, and ideal set-up with your computer device.
