Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich
speaks at CSUS May 26

Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich will speak at California State University, Sacramento at 6:30 p.m., Monday, May 26 in the University Union Ballroom.

Photo: Dennis KucinichThe Memorial Day address is the first of what University organizers hope will be a series of campus visits by presidential candidates from a number of political parties.
Kucinich is a member of the U.S. Congress representing Ohio’s 10th District and chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In 1977, at the age of 31, he was elected mayor of Cleveland, the youngest person elected to lead a major U.S. city. He lost his reelection bid in 1979, and began a political comeback 15 years later when he was elected to the Ohio Senate.

Free parking will be available after 5 p.m. in the lots near the University Union (lots 4, 6, 7 and 8), which is on the south side of campus near the entrance off Highway 50.
More public information on the event is available by contacting event organizer Rhonda Rios Kravitz in the University Library at (916) 278-5477.

MEDIA: John Gabriel, who is helping the Kucinich organization, can be reached at (916) 451-3285. Media organizations seeking special parking arrangements for live trucks or other assistance should contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156 by noon, Friday, May 23.

CSUS offices will not be open on Memorial Day, May 26. On the day of the event, limited assistance will be available by contacting Rhonda Rios Kravitz by cell phone at (916) 761-0850.
