September Forum: The Upcoming Elections
Co-Sponsored with the National Council of Jewish Women
Dr. Timothy Kneeland, Chair and Professor of History and Political Science at Nazareth College
Are the issues being obscured by the media focus on the personalities of the candidates at the top of the 2 main parties’ slates? What about the down-ballot races – the ones that affect our day-to-day lives the most? And what are the issues that matter to us this year?
Dr. Kneeland will focus on these and other important questions as we prepare to cast our votes on November 8.
