A Conversation with House Speaker Joe Straus
Join The Texas Tribune at the Austin Club for coffee and conversation with House Speaker Joe Straus.
Straus was elected speaker of the Texas House in 2009 and was recently re-elected to a third term in that post. In addition to serving as speaker, he represents San Antonio's House District 121, which includes the Bexar County communities of Alamo Heights, Olmos Park, Terrell Hills and northeast San Antonio. Straus was first elected to the House in a special election in February 2005.
Several times a month, The Texas Tribune hosts a series of conversations featuring prominent elected officials and other newsmakers at the historic Austin Club in downtown Austin. These in-depth discussions are moderated by the Tribune's CEO and editor-in-chief, Evan Smith.
Coffee is served before the conversation begins, allowing time for our attendees to mingle. A question-and-answer session afterward offers a chance for the audience to interact with our honored guest.
