Presidential candidate Gravel coming to campus
Jan. 8, 2008
KALAMAZOO--Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel is scheduled to hold a town hall style meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, on the campus of Western Michigan University. Gravel, a former U.S. Senator from Alaska, will take questions for about one hour in room 105 of the Bernhard Center.
"We expect Sen. Gravel to answer questions for about an hour, however, we have booked extra time in the room as this is his last event of the evening, and he has a reputation for staying until all questions are answered," says Brian Gutman, president of the College Democrats of WMU, which is sponsoring the event.
The event is free of charge, doors will open at 7 p.m., and all seating will be open. A voter registration table will be set up outside the meeting room. Change of address forms and information about requesting absentee ballots for future elections will be available.
