Santa Clara, CA
Mickey Edwards, Former Member of Congress (R-OK); Vice President and Director, Aspen Institute Rodel Fellowships in Public Leadership; Author, The Parties Versus the People
Public opinion and constant political gridlock present stark signs that our nation is more divided than ever along partisan lines. How can we bridge the gap and get the country back on track? Edwards was a Republican member of Congress for 16 years, keeping a high profile among the House Republican leadership and as a member of the Appropriations and Budget Committees. He will address the impact partisanship has on public policy and offers solutions toward a renewal of our democratic process in American politics.
