Pct. 3 Commissioner Will Conley has joined the board of Austin Community College’s Center for Public Policy & Political Studies along with former Gov. Mark White and Robert Jones, political director for Annie’s List, a group that advocates for election of Democratic women.
“It is a real honor to sit on this board. It’s imperative that the generations of tomorrow have a complete understanding of government at all levels. The great experiment of America only works well when you have an informed and educated public. Hopefully, our service on this board will assist in providing these opportunities for future generations while making our country stronger in the process,” Conley said.
A nonprofit organization, the center’s work include the Jeffrey M. Friedman Political Video History Project, a student-run, CPPPS-supervised voter registration campaign, an award-winning celebration of Constitution Day, production of multiple publications which track single district and other local voting trends, a historical and festive remembrance of Diez y Seis de Septiembre, and various workshops and lectures produced with internal and external ACC community support.Email | Print
