Fwd: Forum on the National Debt

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Suzanne Broughton <>


I am sending this message to tell you about a forum for which I have
been very involved in the planning. I believe this is an important
topic for all of us: The National Debt. The League of Women Voters of
Greater Pittsburgh has been very fortunate to engage two experts to
help us understand this topic. I hope that you will considering
attending: September 20, 5:30 p.m., Rivers Club.

The forum is free. There is an optional dinner with the speakers
afterward at a cost of $75. Registration for the forum and/or the
dinner is necessary. The attached flyer contains a link to register.

Most Pittsburghers are familiar with Paul O'Neill's accomplishments.
Besides Alice Rivlin's positions listed on the flyer, she served on
the Simpson-Bowles Commission on the federal budget. She also
co-chaired, with former Senator Pete Domenici, the Bipartisan Policy
Center's Debt Reduction Task Force.

Even though the forum is free, it is the League's main fund-raiser,
through sponsorships and ads in the program book. It replaces our
Good Government Award dinner program, which had been our fund-raiser
for the last 15 years. If you know of a business or institution that
would like to be a sponsor of the forum or place an ad, please let me
know immediately so I can send the proper information. Time is short;
we need sponsors and ads by September 7 to print the program. Short
notice, I know.

Please feel free to forward this flyer as widely as you can.

I'm looking forward to this forum and hope to see you there.
