Lunchbox* Debates The Budget & Policy Center is hosting a series of lunch-time debates that will provide an opportunity to learn more about current progressive issues and engage in a lively discussion with other community leaders.
Debate Topic: What to do with the Initiative Process? Featuring debaters State Senator Ken Jacobsen and Bill LaBorde of the Transportation Choices Coalition. Would it be better to use the initiative process to advance a progressive agenda or to get rid of it all together? That is the question that State Senator Ken Jacobsen (D-46th) and Bill LaBorde, State Policy Director of the Transportation Choices Coalition will tackle in what should be a very timely Lunchbox Debate.
Take a break from your busy day to be part of this important discussion:
When: Wednesday, October 28th, Noon - 1 pm
Where: The Vance Building, 1402 Third Ave, Room 530
Please RSVP to Ben Secord at firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be a casual, friendly and internal event. The opinions and perspectives expressed do not necessarily represent the organization or individuals, as we may ask people to take a more extreme position to help us better understand a particular perspective.
* Sorry no lunchboxes provided, we just thought this title sounded good. It's BYOL!
Hope to see you tomorrow!
