Town Square Discussion on Partisanship and Book Signing by Ray LaHood

The only elected Republican selected for President Obama’s Cabinet, former U.S. transportation secretary and congressman Ray LaHood sought to bridge the partisan divide between the new Democratic administration and Republicans on Capitol Hill.

In 2015, LaHood, along with coauthor Dr. Frank H. Mackaman of The Dirksen Congressional Center, released their book Seeking Bipartisanship: My Life in Politics, which has been highly praised by both Democrats and Republicans.

On Sunday, August 13, 2017, LaHood will discuss partisanship in politics. The discussion will be moderated by Rick Pearson, the Chicago Tribune chief political reporter, and is part of Aurora University’s Town Square Series. LaHood will be signing copies of his book after the event. The book can be purchased on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. For more information on the event and to register, click here.

Seeking Bipartisanship a Must Now All the More

bipartisanship

A recent Pew report noted that “a large majority of the public wants the new president to work closely with members of the opposing party in Congress (76%)” and that “Overall, 50% say it is either very (10%) or somewhat (41%) likely that Donald Trump will work with Democrats in Washington on important issues, while about as many (49%) say they think this is very (20%) or somewhat (29%) unlikely.”

Given the divisive nature of the 2016 presidential election, the objective of seeking bipartisanship is going to be even more difficult–yet more crucial–than ever. It has been done before by Secretary Ray LaHood who wrote the book on it, literally with Frank H. Mackaman.

The book, aptly titled Seeking Bipartisanhip, has been praised by Republicans and Democrats. This fascinating read provides remarkable insights on how Washington works and what needs to change. Order this book on Amazon today and get free shipping!

First step to #EndTheDivide is #SeekingBipartsanship

#Bipartisanship

“The ideological divide between the parties, enflamed by the sense of partisan superiority claimed by both sides, produced legislative gridlock. There were no winners. We need to get back to an America where Congress solves problems, passes a farm bill, passes an immigration bill, passes tax reform, passes a budget. It is possible. We proved it during Bill Clinton’s administration when a Republican Congress joined a Democratic president to pass three budgets and welfare reform.” – Secretary Ray LaHood and Dr. Frank Mackaman, Seeking Bipartisanship
