The American Policy Roundtable to Host Healthcare Lecture at LEC

(Painesville, Ohio) - The American Policy Roundtable will host a lunchtime lecture at Lake Erie College on Monday, April 22 at noon in the Dickinson Lecture Hall in the Austin Hall of Science. Presenters of the lecture are Legislative Director Melanie Elsey and Vice President Rob Walgate. The title of the lecture is "A Discussion on How the New Federal Healthcare Law Will Affect You."

Elsey, who previously taught in public schools, her work today focuses primarily today on researching public policy and communicating with state and federal legislators regarding the impact on families and communities. Elsey closely followed the development of the most recent federal healthcare law, reading various drafts and the final version multiple times. To this end, she has been asked to discuss the law's impact in community forums across Ohio in order to educate the public. Elsey can also be heard weekly bringing the message of responsible citizenship to the public on The American Policy Roundtable's national radio broadcast The Public Square®, co-hosted by Dave Zanotti and Wayne Shepherd.  

Walgate's work focuses on upholding the organizational mission of "reaching all people with the message of liberty anchored in Judeo-Christian principles." Since joining the Roundtable in 2003, he has provided leadership on multiple statewide ballot campaigns, including but not limited to, taxation policies and casinos. He continues to spend much time in Columbus working to shape public policy that will impact Ohio families and communities. A noted speaker, Walgate has been a guest on numerous radio and television shows covering the political landscape. He is also a frequent guest on The Public Square®.

The lecture is free and open to the public; boxed lunches will be served. An RSVP is required to Katie Staats at 440-375-7230 or Free parking is available on the west end of the Morley Music Building.
