ADVISORY: Governor O’Malley Speaks on Fiscal Responsibility
John D. Podesta, President and CEO, Center for American Progress Action Fund
The legacy of conservative governance combined with a faltering economy has left our country and many of our states facing a fundamental budget challenge: how to restore fiscal responsibility while making needed investments in infrastructure, energy, health care, education, housing, and elsewhere.
Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley has been a leader in demonstrating progressive fiscal responsibility and will discuss his efforts to close an inherited $1.7 billion structural deficit, while making critical investments to protect and invest in Maryland’s priorities.
Governor O’Malley states, "In Maryland, we have tried to practice a different kind of politics–the ‘politics of posterity’–to make decisions–sometimes very hard decisions–based on our shared values, and our desire to choose a better future for ourselves, our children, and our posterity." Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund as we host Governor O’Malley for this stimulating discussion on fiscal responsibility.
Program: 12:00pm to 1:00pm Admission is free.
