You're mad as hell about our political system and not going to take it anymore!
Our political system appears to be in gridlock year around and we see more ads from politicians than we do real progress. Join us on October 18th at The Commons Hotel on the U of MN East Bank to hear noted author and political pundit Norm Ornstein address how Congress is failing America and what it will take to get it back on track.
What do you get? A great author, speaker, and leader who isn’t afraid to call out Congress on their miserable track record. Did we mention you get lunch as well? Register now! Seating is limited.
Listen, learn, and then vote just a few weeks later with a new perspective on our nation and our future. You won’t want to miss this event!
