Bob Perls will be a special guest and panelist at this event:
The 2016 Election is Coming!
Is the Media Ignoring Independent Voters, Major Party Platforms or Both?
Join us for a special discussion.
Saturday, June 13, 2015
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Southwest Secondary Learning Center
10301 Candelaria Rd NE 
(northwest corner of Candelaria and Morris)
First hour will include a panel discussion composed of Republicans, Democrats, Independents, DTS, and members of the media who will address some of the following questions.
·         What is the Republican or Democratic Platform?
·         What are the differences between these two platforms?
·         Do registered voters choose or stay with a party based on the platform?
·         Do candidates and elected leaders know of, and support, the majority of the platform?  Should they be required to do so?  If not, why not?  How will the public know what they stand for?
·         Are voters leaving the major parties because of the platform?
·         Are independents/DTS voters so because there is no platform that represents their views?
·         With the increase in independent voters, does the focus on the two-party system disenfranchise voters?  Is this the media’s intention?
·         And more…..
Party platforms and resource material are attached. The first hour will be a moderated discussion, followed by two hours of open discussion. As always ---
