With the federal government currently in the spotlight, the complexities and politics of government funding and budgets has never been more evident.

The state budget is no joke, either. What gets funded, what gets cut, and what goes into these decisions? Where do local funds come into play? And in Ohio, with its oft argued “inequation” of educational funding, how do we solve that lingering problem?

Our panel discussion will feature author and Ohio budget expert Terry Thomas, Greg Lawson (Research Fellow at The Buckeye Institute), Tracy Nájera (Executive Director of the Children s Defense Fund, Ohio) and Karen Kasler (Bureau Chief of Ohio Public Radio and TV Statehouse).

In Partnership With: Center for Community Solutions and the Buckeye Institute 

Regular Entree: Grilled chicken with enchilada sauce . Served with a garden salad.

Vegetarian Entree: Pablano and portobello fajitas with roasted vegetables and Mexican rice.  Served with a garden salad.
