The Deschutes Public Library and Oregon Humanities is proud to co-present a free discussion about political discourse and the quality of public life. This Conversation Project event will take place on Thursday, November 4th, 2010 in the Brooks Room of the Bend Public Library at 6:30 p.m.
Do the failures of modern governance and politics have more to do with a crisis of leadership or a crisis or citizenship? What can we as citizens do to improve the political discourse and the quality of public life? This is the focus of “Of the People or for the People: Getting the Government We Deserve” a free conversation with Jeff Golden, former host of Jefferson Public Radio’s Jefferson Exchange.
Golden has served as a public broadcasting producer, columnist, radio talk show host, and commentator. He is a former Jackson County commissioner, chief of staff to the Oregon Senate president, and environmental policy aide to the City of Portland. Golden is senior fellow of the American Leadership Forum and a media fellow of the Property and Environment Research Center.
