VoterPalooza: An issues and candidates forum
Statement of Purpose
On September 20, 2008, at the Municipal Office Center in Port Huron, The SCCDP will participate in VoterPalooza, an issues and candidates forum focusing on the major themes of the 2008 election. VoterPalooza will provide voters a chance to hear advocates for four political parties as well as candidates from four local races. We are inviting representatives of the Democratic and Republican parties to participate. From the parties' advocates, voters will hear the parties' positions on the two overarching issues of the campaign: the economy and national security.
From candidates, voters will get side-by-side comparison. With VoterPalooza, we hope to stimulate voter interest and encourage people to use their right to vote in this important election, perhaps the most important presidential contest in generations. The right to vote for our national and local leadership is a fundamental feature of our American citizenship. By providing voters information about Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, and Green party ideas for how best to stabilize our economy and keep us secure in a troubled world, and by focusing attention on four local races. By participating in this event, the SCCDP hopes to generate excitement about the democratic process and increase voter turnout in St. Clair County.
