Let's here it for the St. Paul Public Library sponsoring the Saint Paul*itics program right here in our backyard. As the website says:
The Saint Paul-itics series aims to increase awareness about local and national issues and encourage civic involvement.I think its wonderful that the library is building on the momentum here in MN and using its information-based, non-partisan platform to get people educated and excited about this election season. Here's a link to the national and regional speakers and events that are affiliated with the Saint Paul*itics program. Get out and learn, then get out and vote!
Saint Paul-itics will:
- Create an informed citizenry and provide a forum for Saint Paul residents to discuss the democratic process.
- Help Saint Paul residents find ways to connect to the national excitement and interest in the Twin Cities that hosting the RNC will create.
- Create opportunities for those interested in politics to connect to others with like interests and to expand their base of knowledge.
