It's the Economy, Stupid!

April 11, 2008 - Bill Speer
Readers need to circle this date on their calendars - April 22 - as at 7 p.m. that day the Blue Tiger Democrats are sponsoring a forum on the economy entitled "It's the Economy, Stupid!"

Now before you go jumping to conclusions that this only is a Democrat event, or that only the Democratic point of view is going to be presented that night, let me tell you're wrong. Naturally it will be part of the evening - what do you expect when the group is meeting at the Alpena County Democrat Headquarters at 212 N. Second - but that is a small price to pay for admission.

Trust me, those who attend will be treated to some interesting perspective and insight provided by area leaders well versed in local economic issues. I expect attendees will be treated to various opinions and positions that evening that will cross political lines.

The economy certainly has moved to the forefront of the presidential race this year, and thus it only is fitting a local forum would be held on the subject.

I commend Alpena Democrat Chair Keith Titus for organizing the event, something that if successful he would like to duplicate again examining other subjects.

As of this moment final details still were being hammered out as to who all have committed to speaking at the forum, but let me assure you that it is an impressive group of local leaders who I think would have important insight into the topic.

Read upcoming editions of The Alpena News to learn the final list of speakers. Until then, however, circle April 22 and reserve 7 p.m. in your planner. The title of the forum alone is enough to have me interested!
