Whether it’s as chair of the House Financial Services Committee or as the target of Tea Party homophobic slurs, Barney Frank always seems to be at or near the eye of whatever storm is passing through Washington these days.
This Saturday, May 8, Frank is bringing his refreshingly blunt style of political discourse to the Twin Cities during a luncheon/Q. & A. at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. In the appearance, which is sponsored by the Caux Round Table, an international non-profit organization that seeks to promote ethical business practices and corporate social responsibility, and co-hosted by the Minnesota State Bar Association, the Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants, the Minnesota Association of realtors, and Minnesota-based think tank Growth & Justice, the Congressperson from Massachusetts’ Fourth District will address in detail attempts to reform our self-destructive financial system, but knowing Barney Frank – and the volatility of the times in which we live – expect him to take on a much wider range of topics during the two and a-half hour event.
Tickets to the luncheon are $125 per person and a few spaces are still available. Click on www.CauxRoundTable.org or call 651-223-2851 to make a reservation.
