Candidates Forum

In case you didn’t notice, there is an election coming, and we have some great local candidates running.  There will be a forum with our candidates and also other candidates where you can see and hear them and get to know their positions on issues of the day.

 

PLACE:

Clinton Community College

1000 Lincoln Blvd. (MAP)

Clinton, IA

 

DATE:

Thursday, Sept 29, 2016

 

TIME:

6:30 PM

 

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

 

This is sponsored by the YWCA and Franciscan Peace Center.  Here is their statement about the forum as seen on their flyer:

“All state and local candidates have been invited to explain their positions on important policy issues that align with the YWCA mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all and the Franciscan Peace Center’s mission of promoting active nonviolence and peacemaking.”

 

Film Series

For our first entry in this year’s issue film series, we saw a great film, “The House I Live In” telling us more than most of us ever knew about the thing they call the war on drugs.

The second film, “We’re Not Broke” told us about how large corporations manage to hide profits from the obligation to pay taxes thus depriving the treasury of funds that are badly needed for human services.

There will be one more film in the series about the issue of guns.

THIS IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. EVERYONE IS WELCOME. AND WE WILL EVEN SUPPLY SOME FREE REFRESHMENTS.

The films are being shown at the Lyons Branch of the Clinton Public Library at 105 Main Avenue, Clinton, IA. (MAP)

The third film is ….

Mon., Oct 17 — “Under the Gun” (On Gun Control Issues)

 Lyons Branch of the Clinton Public Library at 105 Main Avenue, Clinton, IA. (MAP)

6:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

This will allow enough time watch the film and then to talk about it after it is over.  These have been good discussions in the past, and they have been of great help to us in understanding the films, the forces behind what the films depict, and how it applies to us here in Clinton County.
