November Program Series Sneak Peak
National, state, and local elections are held in November, and there is a lot to discuss across the political leadership spectrum. During November, Rotarians will be treated to the views of several professionals who are deeply involved in politics and government on several levels.  The Politics & Elections Series will include notable professionals in the field such as Karen Waters, president of Strategies 360, a major political consulting firm in the region, Jerry Cornfield, long-time political reporter for the Daily Herald (the parent paper to our Kirkland Reporter), and Dr. Glennys Young, a Russia and Soviet Union historian and chair of the University of Washington's Jackson School of International Studies.  Stay tuned for further developments as this November series unfolds.
