UCLA Luskin School Election Event in Downtown LA Oct. 17

With the presidential debate coming up on Oct. 3, and with your state voter pamphlet probably arriving around now, you may have an interest in a program offered by the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs later this month (October 17).  Below is an announcement and below that is a link for registering to attend:

After the horse race is over and Election 2012 has been decided, the business of governing is going to get very difficult very quickly. With budget cuts looming and taxes set to rise, voters are struggling to understand competing visions for the future. Is a balanced compromise possible in an atmosphere of extreme partisanship? How does the rhetoric of an election year match our fiscal reality?

Join Mark Z. Barabak, political writer for the Los Angeles Times;Sky Gallegos, political strategist and experienced campaign veteran; Adam Nagourney, Los Angeles bureau chief for The New York Times; Dan Schnur, director of USC's Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics; and Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr., dean of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs for an engaging discussion that's sure to enlighten and inform.
Join us before the program for an All-American reception featuring hot dogs and apple pie!

It's a two year degree program, usually divided into five semesters. There are also those who deal with athletes who need a private physio therapist to ascertain their health condition in a frequent interval. Step 3: Determine the goal(s) you would like to achieve during each session.
