The Grant County Democratic Party presents a pre-election “issues lunch” on Wednesday, October 18, at noon at the Red Barn Restaurant in Silver City. Magdaleno Manzanares, Associate Professor in Political Science at WNMU, makes a mid-sabbatical appearance to share his thoughts on the political mood of the country just prior to the 2006 mid-term elections. As well, Dr. Manzanares will report on his recent visit to Mexico following their national election.
In addition, US Foreign Service veteran and Silver City resident Rick Sherman will add his impression, based on his 40 years of international diplomacy, of the current international situation and the results of the past several years of American foreign policy.
This lunch is a kind of ‘greatest hits’ as we go into the final weeks of campaigning. Since the agenda is very full, both speakers will be available before and after their presentations for questions.
Doors will open at 11:30 with a buffet lunch available for $8.
