Gardner Selby, writer for Austin American-Statesman, will provide perspective on covering the much anticipated Election Day. Apart from that, Selby will touch on how to obtain Freedom of Information and the important things to know regarding covering an election at the local, state and national level.
Having been a staffer at the Statesman for four years, Selby is now chief political writer after writing for a string of newspapers. Among his old writing stomping grounds are the Daily Texan during his college days and the San Antonio Express-News where he covered state government and politics at the capitol.
Selby’s session, “Politics and the Papertrail,” will take place on Oct. 22 in Old Main, room 201 at 11 a.m.
