Midwest Regional Director to participate in a panel discussion about the role of taxes and federal / state budgets and fiscal challenges. Other panelists include:
Gretchen Tegeler, Polk Des Moines Taxpayers Association
David Vaught, Iowa State Auditor
Scott Sanders, City of Des Moines
The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Concord Coalition's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents.
