The spring Central Michigan University Griffin Policy Forum will feature four top-level insider panelists who will discuss predictions for the November election Monday, April 2, at 7 p.m. in the Powers Hall Ballroom.
 
Panelists will discuss who may win the election, how the economy and social issues may be framed by each party, whether potential Michigan ballot issues may affect candidate elections, and the effect the election may have on the current continuing gridlock in the U.S. Congress.
 
Featured panelists include Jill Alper, democratic strategist and media consultant at Dewey Square Group; Rusty Hills, director of public affairs for the Michigan attorney general; John Truscott, president and principal of Truscott Rossman; and Rick Wiener, founder of Wiener Associates. Rick Pluta, managing editor and state capitol bureau chief from Michigan Public Radio Network, will be moderating.
 
The Griffin Policy Forum is hosted twice a year by the Robert and Marjorie Griffin Endowed Chair in American Government, the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the department of political science “to elevate political awareness and activity among students, faculty and citizens and to help prepare principled political leaders to serve Michigan in the future.”
 
Admission is free and open to the public.
