On Thursday, September 27th, 2012, a Town Hall Meeting will be held at Jacksonville University in the Gooding Auditorium in which issues affecting the Latino community will be addressed by a forum of candidates running for office in the up-coming election. LeAnne Kolb, candidate for the 5th Congressional District will speak as well as her opponent, 20 year incumbent Congresswoman Corrine Brown, followed by a Q & A session from the audience.
Opening remarks will be offered by Jacksonville Political Science Professor, Dr. Steven Baker who will address higher education problems Latino students face and the challenges of securing good paying jobs after graduation. Will Torres, VP of LULAC will comment on issues affecting the Hispanic community such as economic empowerment, public services for Latinos, and common misconceptions of the Hispanic community. Jerry Holland, Supervisor of Elections, will discuss the importance of voting, the impact of Latino and students on the voting process and new Amendments on the ballot.
As a successful businesswoman and community servant for over 13 years in the Jacksonville area, LeAnne will share her heart for improving the economic conditions for all graduates and her plans to foster job growth through tax incentives, deregulation, and the elimination of wasteful, unethical government spending. Please make plans to attend what promises to be an exciting and informative event this Thursday at 7:00 PM at Jacksonville University.
