Public invited; first of three events is Tuesday, Oct. 23
DUDLEY -The coming Presidential election will get plenty of “air time” at Nichols College in the coming weeks through three evening programs hosted by
political experts. The programs, presented by the school’s Fischer Institute and History and Political Science departments, are aimed atraising election–year issues, making students more informed about the candidates, and encouraging them to get out and vote.
All three events will take place in Davis Hall 205 on the Nichols campus and are open to the public.
On Tuesday, October 23 at 7 p.m., former White House Speech Writer and
Presidential Scholar Michael Waldman will share his insights on presidential races past and present.
On Thursday, October 25 also at 7 p.m., Nichols graduate Neil Levesque, the executive director of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics and Political Library at Saint Anselm College, will speak. Levesque also worked for 12 years with former New Hampshire Congressman Charles Bass for whom he organized legislative agendas and public policy initiatives.
After the votes have all been counted Political Science Professor Maurice Cunningham, from the University of Massachusetts at Boston, will provide a post-election analysis on Thursday, November 8 at 7 p.m.
In between the two final programs, the Nichols student body will cast ballots in its long-running presidential straw poll to choose the next commander-in-chief.
