What do Lowell P. Weicker Jr., Linda McMahon, Ben Barnes, Joe Lieberman, Barbara Kennelly and Nancy Johnson have in common?
They are among the political heavy weights slated to appear at forum next month in Hartford. The July 15 event will focus on fiscal responsibility at the state and federal levels; it's hosted by the non-partisan No Labels group.
Lieberman, one of the leaders of the No Labels movement nationally, will speak at the forum, which will be held at the Hartford Club on July 15.
The panel discussion on federal fiscal issues will feature McMahon, Kennelly and Johnson. It will be moderated by former U.S. Comptroller General — and possible U.S. Senate candidate — David Walker. (McMahon, of course, is also pondering a Senate bid.)
The discussion on state fiscal matters will feature Weicker, Barnes, Metro Hartford Alliance CEO Oz Griebel and Sheila Weinberg, CEO of the Institute for Truth in Accounting. It will be moderated by Debra Hauser, who co-chairs the Connecticut No Labels chapter, along with Walker and Brett Hellerman.
Due to strong interest, the event is now open to the public. For more information, email NoLabels.CAI.firstname.lastname@example.org
