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.
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.
