The Citadel and the College of Charleston host the Concord Coalition's Fiscal Forum on the day of the Presidential Debate in Charleston, SC at 1 PM and 3 PM respectively. Concord's Executive Director Robert Bixby will join former Comptroller David Walker and former South Carolina Governor/Congressman Mark Sanford in a non-partisan, fact-based discussion on fiscal policy issues and long term federal budget trends. For more information or to attend, please contact Phil Smith at PSmith@concordcoalition.org
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.
