Two Sides of Election 2020 featuring Karl Rove and Jennifer Granholm

The Jack Maddox Distinguished Lecture Series goes virtual with its fall presentation featuring national speakers Karl Rove and Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm in a panel discussion focused on the current Presidential election and what it means for Lea County.  These point -counterpoint speakers bring Karl Rove, with over four decades of experience in the political arena, to the counterpoint of Jennifer M. Granholm, a former two-term governor and former attorney general of Michigan. The Two Sides of Election 2020 is Hosted by the JF Maddox Foundation and University of the Southwest.

Rove and Granholm will give an outlook on the 2020 election, addressing key national issues including those with direct impact on the Permian Basin. This virtual event happens online at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, October 27, 2020. Guests are welcome at no charge and must sign up through Eventbrite to attend.  Tickets are available now, and a code to view the virtual event will be emailed to all registrants. For details, link, and information visit jfmaddox.org.

Karl Rove is an iconic strategist whose provocative and robust knowledge of the major issues of the day have made him one of the most sought-after commentators of our time.  Rove has been described by respected author and columnist Michael Barone as “unique…no Presidential appointee has ever had such a strong influence on politics and policy, and none is likely to do so again anytime soon” and by Fred Barnes, Executive Editor of the Weekly Standard as “the greatest political mind of his generation and probably of any generation… He knows history, understands the moods of the public, and is a visionary on matters of public policy.”

Jennifer M. Granholm currently serves as the co-chair of Priorities USA Action and is the Director of the American Jobs Project at UC Berkeley, where she also teaches a course in law and public policy. After leaving office, Granholm hosted Current TV’s national political analysis show The War Room with Jennifer Granholm and co-authored the Washington Post political bestseller, A Governor’s Story: The Fight for Jobs and America’s Economic Future. Today, Granholm advocates for a national commitment to advanced manufacturing, worker training, and clean energy.

Since its inception in 1989, the Jack Maddox Distinguished Lecture Series has been hosted by University of the Southwest.  The purpose of the series is to contribute to the quality of life in Lea County, New Mexico and the surrounding area by providing nationally recognized speakers for intellectual stimulation and entertainment.

Second Saturday at the Museum: Take & Make

The community is invited to “Second Saturday at the Museum: Take and Make” – a safe replacement for Family Fun Days. On Second Saturdays, people can drive up to the museum, and receive a packet full of activities for families.

On December 12, our theme is Christmas Traditions, with family crafts about Christmas around the world. A limited number of packets will be available, and it’s first-come, first-serve. Each person in a vehicle will receive one packet with the option to request an extra two packets to take to someone not in the vehicle. Simply pull around the circle, stop, roll down the window, and pick up the free packets (tape, scissors, etc. needed to create the crafts are not included). Activities and crafts are for all ages, but younger children may need help from an adult.

For up-to-date information, follow the Museum on Facebook (facebook.com/WHMuseum), or go to the website: nmjc.edu/museum.
