Stockman, Alter to headline Washington program
Published 12:00 am, Sunday, August 13, 2017
A program about money — the debt ceiling, the budget, trade wars, entitlements, defense and more — will take place Aug. 20 at 3 p.m. as part of the “Conversations on the Green” series in Washington.
Former Ronald Reagan budget chief David Stockman will join author and MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter to discuss the monetary land mines ahead at St. John’s Parish Hall on Parsonage Lane.
Stockman was a Michigan member of the U.S. House of Representatives who became a household name as the director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Reagan.
After leaving the Reagan administration, he became a managing director of Salomon Brothers.
His most recent book is “Trumped! A Nation on the Brink of Ruin . . . And How to Bring It Back,” which was published in October.
A veteran journalist, Alter is an NBC News analyst, historian, award-winning author and radio host.
He was a Newsweek columnist from 1983 until 2011, has written three New York Times best-sellers about American presidents and is a contributing correspondent to NBC News.
His most recent book is “The Center Holds: Obama and his Enemies.”
General tickets are $45 and Angels on the Green tickets are $250 and include preferred seating and the opportunity to meet Stockman and Alter at a reception at Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa following the program.
Proceeds will benefit local charities: Greenwoods Counseling Referrals, which provides affordable or free mental health services to the area’s most vulnerable; Susan B. Anthony, which provides free crisis and support services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault; and New Milford Hospital.
A dinner for attendees will follow the reception at the inn. The dinner includes a three-course gourmet meal for $88.50, including wine, gratuity and taxes.
