Government Leadership Seminars Return to Irving
IRVING- A much-anticipated
event at North Lake College, the Fall Government Leadership Seminars
will run September 23 – November 7 at the college’s Central Campus. Open to the public, the seminars allow students and visitors to hear from local and state government officials in an intimate classroom setting. All meetings will be held in room A-347.
This fall’s lineup contains a variety of newsmakers, including Ana Reyes
, the first Hispanic to win a seat on the Farmers Branch City Council. Reyes’ election as the council’s only Hispanic, and only woman, comes in the midst of legal battles over the city’s policies against illegal immigrants. Also addressing national issues is Brianna Brown. A health care expert with the Texas Organizing Project
, Brown will share information regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its implications.
“Immigration, healthcare, marriage…these are all hot topic issues,” says Dr. Gabriel Bach, a professor of government at North Lake College. “These seminars allow us to gain a better understanding of the issues by first asking questions. Not to the professor, but to the government official representing you.”
State House Representatives Linda Harper-Brown
(R) and Rafael Anchia
(D) will also visit North Lake, as well as Chris Hooper of Irving Community Resources and Brenda Haney of Irving Solid Waste Services. View a full listing
of seminar speakers, dates and times.
