McClure Center Launches Policy Pub Speaker Series in Boise

BOISE, Idaho — Dec. 15, 2017 — A bi-monthly speaker series designed to engage Idahoans in the Treasure Valley and throughout the state will launch next month, hosted by the University of Idaho’s James A. & Louise McClure Center for Public Policy Research.

The inaugural “Policy Pub” will focus on Idaho women in public policy and feature a bipartisan group of speakers from the Idaho Legislature. The panel discussion is set for 5:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22, 2018, at Pengilly’s Saloon, 513 W. Main St., Boise. Speakers include state Sen. Cherie Buckner-Webb, D-Boise; state Rep. Caroline Nilsson Troy, R-Genesse; and state Rep. Ilana Rubel, D-Boise.

McClure Center Director Katherine Himes will moderate the discussion. Each panelist will describe her background in public policy, convey her inspiration to enter public service and discuss the biggest challenges facing elected representatives in Idaho and the United States. Their remarks will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The McClure Center, which works to find common ground and pragmatic solutions through its nonpartisan research and outreach, will sponsor additional Policy Pub events throughout 2018. A March panel discussion will focus on policy and the law.
