Schansberg to hold Town Hall Meeting in Seymour on Thursday

Dr. Eric Schansberg will hold a Town Hall meeting in Room 301 of the Seymour City Hall on Thursday, August 21st, from 6:00-7:00 PM. (City Hall is located at 309 N. Chestnut St. in downtown Seymour.)

Dr. Schansberg is an economics professor at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany and the Libertarian candidate for Congress in the 9th District.

Schansberg will deliver prepared remarks 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. . . "
