Join former U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine as she discusses how to bridge the partisan divide in Washington, D.C. Snowe will be the inaugural speaker for the new Presidential Distinguished Visitors Series at the University of Central Florida.
Snowe is the author of “Fighting for Common Ground: How We Can Fix the Stalemate in Congress.” She believes a citizens’ movement holding government accountable is the primary solution to the gridlock that prompted her to leave the U.S. Senate instead of seeking reelection in 2012. Snowe will sign copies of her book following her presentation, and her book will be available for sale.
