Paul Tsongas to speak at Stanford
STANFORD -- Paul Tsongas, former U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and 1992 Democratic presidential hopeful, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, in Kresge Auditorium at Stanford University.
The speech is co-sponsored by the ASSU (Associated Students of Stanford University) Speakers Bureau, Stanford in Government and the Center for Economic Policy Research. Tsongas will speak on the impact of the national debt and deficit on the future of America.
Tickets will be available beginning Oct. 11 at the Tresidder Ticket Office. Tickets are free to anybody with a valid Stanford ID card, $5 to others. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door the evening of the speech, but only for those presenting a valid Stanford ID.
Tsongas, who last year was a contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, is currently working with the Concord Coalition, an organization he founded along with fellow former U.S. Sen. Warren Rudman (R-N.H.) The organization is dedicated to finding ways to improve American business and the national economy. Tsongas and Rudman have argued that for American business to remain competitive, it should focus on research and development, innovation, manufacturing, trade and cooperation with the federal government.
