Impressions of Austin
Spencer Cronk was appointed Austin’s City Manager in February. He is new to Austin, as well as Texas. So what has he absorbed in the past four months about the city’s culture, it’s dynamism, and it’s bureaucracy that he must manage? What does he perceive are his greatest challenges in the near future? What does he believe are the greatest opportunities for the city? And how does he intend to address the former and build upon the latter? He will addresses these, as well as your questions on June 13th.
