David Sirota at Town Hall Tonight

Speaking at Town Hall this evening is writer and new media consultant, David Sirota.  He will be speaking about his new bestselling book, "Hostile Takeover: How Big Money & Corruption Conquered Our Government–and How We Take It Back".  Sirota formerly worked with Congressman Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Governor Brian Schweitzer of Montana.  He was also instrumental in the development of PLAN (Progressive Legislative Action Network), now the Progressive States Network.  Here is a paragraph from Wikipedia that discusses what else he does:

Since May 2005 Sirota has been a contributing blogger at The Huffington Post, in addition to his own blog (which is published in parallel at Working for Change). He is a regular guest on The Al Franken Show. He is senior editor at the progressive newsmagazine In These Times, writes a regular column for the liberal The Nation, and has contributed to The American Prospect. He has also been published in the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Baltimore Sun, the San Francisco Chronicle, and has been profiled favorably in Newsweek. He has also appeared as a guest on The Colbert Report, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, PBS Now, CNBC and NPR. Sirota is also the founder and co-chair of the Progressive States Network.

And he was on Goldy's show on KIRO Sunday evening.  Goldy says he wishes he's had more time with him.  The guy's good. 

His talk is at 7:30. (Town Hall is at 8th & Seneca).  Cost $5 at the door.
