WesDem superstar Ben Florsheim ’14 wants to inform you:


Join Wesleyan Democrats and Government Professor Logan Dancey for dinner/discussion about the impact of the government shutdown and looming debt ceiling crisis, their significance for the U.S. political system, and their possible electoral implications in the coming years.

We will discuss recent coverage of the situation (to be sent articles in advance, email bflorsheim[at]wesleyan[dot]edu), ask questions, eat pizza, and converse as peers. It’s what college is all about.
