6/30: NM First Policy Forum on Bipartisanship at National Hispanic Cultural Center
From New Mexico First:
The public policy organization New Mexico First is hosting its annual First Forum, this year titled: Collaborative Politics: Now More Than Ever. This event, moderated by ABC newsman Sam Donaldson, features the co-chairs of the Commission on Presidential Debates, Mike McCurry (Clinton White House press secretary) and Frank Fahrenkopf (Reagan-era Republican National Committee chair). They will talk from the national perspective about the condition of our democracy, cross-party collaboration and strategies for bringing Americans together. The speakers will also offer first-hand insights on bi-partisanship.
The policy forum will take place on Wednesday, June 30th, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center located at 1701 4th Street SW in Albuquerque. A reception precedes the event at 6:00 PM. Tickets are $35 and may be purchased at www.nmfirst.org.
The event also honors state and civic leaders who have proven their ability to work across party lines. Honorees include U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman, retired U.S. Senator Pete Domenici, Ambassador Edward Romero, civic leader Edward Lujan and the late Patty Jennings. Additional awardees in the areas of education, energy and economic development will be announced soon.
What about democracy, cross-party collaboration and strategies for bringing Americans together beyond just the two parties???
