Rep. Kent Glasscock To Speak At K-State

Manhattan Rep. Kent Glasscock, speaker of the Kansas House of Representatives, will be giving an informal presentation at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, in Kansas State University’s Waters Hall, Room 333.

Glasscock’s talk is open to the public and will focus on his opinion of lawmaking as he has seen it unfold. Also, there will be a question and answer session with state and local government students following the talk.

"All of us are excited that the Speaker is visiting us," said Michael Smith, K-State visiting professor in political science and organizer of the speech. "He knows Kansas politics from the inside, yet he is also our local representative. His visit is a chance for us to connect politics and power in the capitol with local issues that affect us every day."

To better accommodate space, large groups are advised to call the K-State department of political science prior to the event at 785-532-6842.
