Election 2000 Panel Discussion Held Tomorrow

Posted: November 14, 2000 at 1:00 am, Last Updated: November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

What happened on Nov. 7? What is the state of our current electoral system? What roles did the media, interest groups, unions, and parties play in the 2000 elections? What will the presidential transition bring? What does close party division in Congress mean for America in the next two years?

On Wednesday, Nov. 15, from noon to 1:30 p.m., Public and International Affairs (PIA) sponsors a post-election panel discussion to address these and other pressing political issues.

The panel consists of four nationally recognized scholars from Mason–James Pfiffner, PIA; Hugh Heclo, Robinson Professor of Public Affairs; Susan Tolchin, School of Public Policy; and Scott Keeter, chair of PIA.

Student essay contest winners are also announced. A reception with food and drinks immediately follows the discussion. For more information, contact Joel Clark at x31415.
