WHERE: Legacy Books & Cafe, 5249 Delmar (near Union), St. Louis MO 63108
A panel discussion will include:
• Rev. Elston K. McCowan, Green Party candidate for Mayor of St. Louis [moderator]
• Irene J. Smith, Democratic Party candidate for Mayor of St. Louis
• James Morris, Missouri State Representative, 58th District
• Don Fitz, Co-coordinator, Green Party of St. Louis
What will the results of the 2008 election mean for the US, the state of Missouri and the City of St. Louis? The day after the November elections, we will gather for a discussion of what the results mean and what we might anticipate from new national and state administrations.
Will the US economy crash? How will economic chaos affect low income people? How can new administrations protect jobs without poisoning the environment for future generations?
Should we expect more wars or less? How should we respond if the new administration provokes war with Iran? Or if it intervenes in Venezuela?
Closer to home, will the new Missouri legislature continue the attack on public schools? Will it support St. Louis having its own police oversight?
Especially important is what the November elections indicate for the 2009 elections in the City of St. Louis. What needs to change in the City and how can we make it happen?
