AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 20, 2010— The Center for Politics and Governance (CPG) at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, Citizens for State and Local Service (CLASS), and the CenTex Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) presented “Election Wrap-Up: What’s Next for Texas?” featuring political journalists offering their analysis of the Nov. 2 races and their predictions for Texas.
The panel, moderated by LBJ School Lecturer, CPG Interim Director, and former Texas State Representative Sherri Greenberg, included: Paul Burka of Texas Monthly; Christy Hoppe of the Dallas Morning News; Elise Hu of the Texas Tribune, and Harvey Kronberg of the Quorum Report.
The panel took place on Nov. 4 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in SRH 3.124 . The event was free and open to the public.
The panel was part of the Center’s State Policy and Politics Initiative, which includes coursework related to the state legislature, the Center’s internship program, and a broad range of state-specific programs and events designed to facilitate the success of Texas state policy and politics.
Advised by Greenberg, Citizens for Local and State Service (CLASS) is a student-run organization at the LBJ School of Public Affairs dedicated to bringing more attention to the importance of involvement in our local communities. By moving beyond the walls of the classroom, CLASS creates hands-on opportunities to involve and familiarize students with the machinery of state and local government.
The Center for Politics and Governance prepares emerging leaders to be more effective by merging theoretical knowledge and practical applications of politics and governance. The Center develops new approaches to political institutions that will foster creative and effective policymaking. Areas of focus are the effect of campaign politics on policy, the changing demographics of the American electorate, ethical leadership, and the role of the media and emerging technologies.
The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) is the largest and most prominent, professional association in the field of public administration. The CenTex Chapter provides public administrators the opportunity to meet people from their neighborhood, city or county.
