Detroit Public TV and The Center for Michigan holding Community Conversations in Auburn Hills and Warren

Detroit Public TV and the Center team up for Community Conversations – and you’re invited

What’s YOUR agenda for Michigan?

Do you want to bend the ears of Michigan’s political candidates? Join the  The Center for Michigan and MiVote/Detroit Public Television for a community conversation to set your agenda for Michigan in 2014 and beyond.

Two Southeast Michigan community conversations will be held: the first Jan. 28 in Auburn Hills, and the second March 6 in Warren. These discussions are free to the public and light refreshments will be provided. In each conversation, participants will be asked to share their priorities for addressing our state’s most pressing issues, including:

  • Michigan’s economy & prosperity

  • Education

  • Quality of life issues

  • Taxes & Government Spending

The discussions will be led by MiWeek host Christy McDonald. The ideas shared in these conversations will become part of a citizens’ agenda that the Center for Michigan will amplify to candidates running for governor and state legislature

Please RSVP or contact Heather Forgione at 248-305-3707 or to sign up for one of the two community conversation dates:

  • Tuesday, January 28th from  6-7:30pm at Oakland Community College’s Auburn Hills Campus, Building G in room G240. THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. NEW DATE TBD.

  • Thursday, March 6th from 5-7pm at Macomb Community College’s South Campus, 14500 East 12 Mile Road, Warren

More information about Community Conversations is available on the Center’s website, including a full PDF of the Issue Guide we will be utilizing as part of our engagement.

Are you really going to allow live questions, or are you going to use index cards with written questions so that the moderator can eliminate the tough ones?
