Schansberg town hall in Bloomington on Tuesday

Dr. Eric Schansberg, the Libertarian candidate for the U.S. Congress in Indiana’s 9th District, will hold a town-hall meeting in Bloomington on Tuesday, September 9th, from 6:00-7:30 PM. (The meeting will be held in Room #1C of the Monroe County Library, located at 303 E. Kirkwood Ave. in downtown Bloomington.)

Earlier in the day, Dr. Schansberg will be at the 2008 IU Student Involvement Fair from 11:00-2:00 with IU Students for Liberty. After that, he will be a guest on “The Afternoon Edition” with Darryl Neher on WGCL (1370-AM) from 4:00-5:00.

At the town hall, Schansberg will deliver prepared remarks for 15-20 minutes—and then field questions from those in the audience.

In his prepared remarks, Dr. Schansberg will address:

· gas prices and energy policy—policies that will work (domestic drilling and a stronger dollar) and policies that will not work (regulations on speculators, subsidies to energy companies, etc.)

· the dramatic but overlooked impact of fiscal conservatism

· our on-going efforts in Iraq

· the oppressive burden of payroll/FICA taxes on income and the need for Social Security reform

All interested parties are encouraged to attend. Audio and video recording are permitted.
