Video: Place 6 Candidate Sheryl Cole

Austin City Council member Sheryl Cole is up for re-election this May.

The Place 6 council member and Mayor Pro Tem recently came by the KUT studios to discuss her candidacy. KUT’s Wells Dunbar spoke with Cole about affordability and the Austin Energy rate redesign, transportation, and the question of geographic representation on the council.

You can listen to a condensed interview with Cole at; above, we present an expanded version of the discussion with Cole.

Cole faces one challenger in Place 6, Shaun Ireland. Early voting begins in the council races this Monday, April 30. 

Wells has been a part of KUT News since 2012, when he was hired as the station's first online reporter. He's currently the social media host and producer for Texas Standard, KUT's flagship news program. In between those gigs, he served as online editor for KUT, covering news in Austin, Central Texas and beyond.
