SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - Both political parties will be well represented this week on Wittenberg University’s campus as the drama builds for the 2004 national elections on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
First up is a Republican Party event at 2:15 p.m. today in Ness Family Auditorium, Hollenbeck Hall. U.S. Rep. Rob Portman, an incumbent congressman from the Ohio Second District near Cincinnati, and Judith Ann Lanzinger, an Ohio Supreme Court Justice who is running for re-election, are scheduled to give brief presentations and then discuss the issues with all who are interested. It is part of statewide Republican candidate tour intended to improve voter turnout on Nov. 2.
At 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, Wittenberg’s Center Dining Room in the Benham-Pence Student Center will be the site of a “Get Out The Vote” (GOTV) concert.
The concert headliner is a popular Boston-based band called “State Radio.” Wittenberg senior Lamarr Lewis is scheduled to do a hip-hop music performance, Kara Anastasio, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in the seventh district (which includes Springfield and most of Clark County) and Wittenberg Student Senate President Will Chinn will be speaking and Wittenberg senior Brendan Norman, president of the College Democrats, will serve as master of ceremonies.
