Centennial’s fall events may include Gov. & Sen. debates

Centennial Institute, Colorado Christian University’s public policy think tank, announced its event calendar for fall 2010, including the hope of a Governor candidates debate in September and a Senate candidates debate in October. Invitations are pending with the major campaigns, and director John Andrews said the prospects of confirmation are good. (Scroll down for complete fall calendar below photo.)

Andrews also noted that the Issue Monday series will continue each month, legendary conservative strategist Ralph Reed will speak on campus Oct. 12, and a joint conference with the Heritage Foundation on effective compassion in public policy will take place Nov. 10-11, featuring Jay Richards and Robert Woodson. In addition, supporters who have joined the Centennial Business Council or CCU President’s Circle are invited to several breakfast and dinner events.
