Stan Collender, Qorvis Communications executive vice president and leading expert on the U.S. budget and congressional budget, will be speaking today directly with constituents at No Labels’ Illinois telephone town hall—where an anticipated 7,000 people will be in attendance. Collender will participate in the conference call alongside former Comptroller General David Walker.
No Labels is a social welfare advocacy organization dedicated to bringing bipartisanship to the United States government. The organization encourages public officials to prioritize national interest and shared common goals over party interest. In the words of No Labels, “It’s not about politics, it’s about the politics of problem solving.”
During the Illinois Telephone Town Hall, No Labels will strive to promote understanding of the rhetoric behind the 2012 budget reduction debate and examine the likely impacts on both individuals and the State of Illinois. Collender will play a major role in dissecting these issues with the participants.
This event marks a new way of engaging constituents in today’s most pressing matters; over 21,000 Illinois residents will be phoned and encouraged to participate.
