Join Frank Sesno, veteran journalist, former CNN Washington bureau chief, and George Mason professor of public policy and communication, for a town hall meeting on Tuesday, April 20, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Harris Theatre. The topic will be the raging regional debate over how your tax dollars are spent. Scheduled guests are Virginia Gov. Mark Warner, Washington, D.C., Delegate Eleanor Holmes-Norton, Maryland Republican Party Chair John Kane, and Washington Post columnist Colbert King.

The first, highly successful, Sesno Reports was held on the Fairfax Campus in February. That forum featured a discussion on terrorism with U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge and Washington, D.C., Mayor Anthony Williams, among others.
