The Comeback America Initiative (CAI) is hosting an unprecedented Town Hall meeting to engage and empower a representative group of registered voters around the fiscal challenges facing the U.S. and potential solutions. This event is part of CAI’s $10 Million a Minute Bus Tour that will seek to educate voters in swing states at a time when voters want candidates to focus on substance and solutions.
David M. Walker, Founder and CEO of CAI, and former U.S. Comptroller General and a political independent, will spearhead the tour, along with other fiscal experts. The tour has been endorsed by an impressive array of political, business and other leaders from both major parties, as well as political independents. AmericaSpeaks will partner to organize and conduct the Town Hall meeting, utilizing components of their 21st Century Town Meeting® Model to measure public sentiment.
Two meetings will take place over the next few months. The first will be in Ohio in the early fall and the second meeting will take place in Virginia.
OHIO: The Town Hall meeting is being held in the 16th congressional district of Ohio, which is the most highly contested Congressional election in the state. The 16th congressional district includes portions of Ashland, Cuyahoga, Medina, Stark, and Wayne counties. The Town Hall Meeting will be co-presented by Dr. Isabel V. Sawhill, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution.
VIRGINIA: The meeting is open to all registered voters in Virginia, but you must first apply to attend. Applications will be accepted to ensure participants are demographically and politically representative of the State of Virginia.
