Tues., Oct. 7: Art Robinson presents National Security Public Forum, 6:30pm, Holiday Inn Express, Albany
Looking outside our borders, it becomes obvious that the government's first duty has to be to keep us safe. Being vigilant about threats, standing firm on protecting our national interest, and doing everything possible to provide the best for our brave men and women in uniform are all parts of this. But following the Constitution while we do so is also important. We've all seen that the bureaucrats in Washington just haven't been up to the job, however. That's why Dr. Robinson is hosting a forum on National Security, so he can hear YOUR opinions on how to handle ourselves in war and peace. Info and RSVP.
Get flyer.
