Don’t miss next week’s Crucial Conversation

The coming political year: What will happen? What should happen?

It looks like 2012 is going to be one heck of a year in North Carolina politics and public policy — maybe one for the ages.

Between the General Assembly’s “midnight madness” fiasco, other special legislative sessions, a statewide vote on a constitutional amendment to restrict marriage, a presidential primary, a court fight over redistricting, a legislative “short session,” chronic economic and fiscal crises, a presidential/ gubernatorial/ council of state/ legislative election and the most aggressively reactionary state legislature in decades, it’s hard to imagine how things could be much crazier.

So what does public opinion tells us is going to happen? What ought to happen?

Don’t miss a chance to gather some answers to these questions from two of the state’s leading experts. Join us at noon on Thursday, February 2, for a Crucial Conversation lunch featuring: Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling and our own Chris Fitzsimon.

    You forgot to mention the scandals in the Perdue administration and the loss of money in several departments. But, then you never remember the sins of the Democrats.

    Thanks for the invite, I am sure I would not feel comfortable. Cannot stand hearing just hearing one side, it just is not right.
