SW Harbor Library Workshop Series: “How Our Government Works”
February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Curious about how government works? Wonder why it takes so long to get a bill passed in Congress? Do presidents have too much or too little power and what powers anyway? What difference does it make who sits on the Supreme Court? Why do political action committees (PAC) and lobbyists seem to play an outsized role in politics? Carolyn Ball, Ph.D., is a professor emeritus at the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service. In leading this workshop series at the Southwest Harbor Public Library, she won’t take positions, but each week she will look at one area of government to give you the nuts and bolts and relate it to today’s news.
