JACKSON, Tenn. – March 17, 2005 – U.S. Rep. John Tanner will address the issue of Social Security at a town hall meeting March 29 at Union University.
Tanner will discuss the problem with Social Security as he sees it and will explore some of the competing proposals to fix the system. A question-and-answer session will follow his presentation.
“The main purpose I see in this is to raise awareness, educate the public and provide feedback to an elected representative,” said Union political science professor Sean Evans. “Social Security is a very important issue for many people, both and young and old, especially young. So I’d like to raise awareness of students on campus of an issue which directly affects them.”
The town hall meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the G.M. Savage Memorial Chapel on Union’s campus. The event is open to the public.
For more information, call Evans at (731) 661-5237.
