Political Science Fair for Ohio House Candidates Clyde, Skeriotis

Kent State University Political Science Club hosting forum Friday at 2 p.m.

The Political Science Club will host a Political Science Fair and Forum for candidates of the 75th Ohio House District on Friday, September 14 at 2:00 p.m.

The Political Science Fair, taking place in the Kent Student Center Ballroom, will welcome incoming and returning students with the opportunity to meet students, faculty and staff from the Department of Political Science, as well as political candidates from Portage County and surrounding areas.

The Political Science Fair is an initiative organized by the Kent State University Political Science Club, the Kent State Chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha Honorary, and the Department of Political Science at Kent State. Funding for the event is sponsored by Kent State’s Undergraduate Student Government.

“The fair represents a non-partisan effort by students, faculty and staff here at Kent State,” Political Science Club President Christopher Clevenger said. “The event offers an opportunity for students to register to vote, learn more about some of our political student organizations, and to get to know candidates in and around Portage County.”

The event will feature a forum between Representative Kathleen Clyde and Nick Skeriotis, . The forum will be moderated Bob Conklin, host of Time Warner’s local political show ‘In The Spotlight’.

“The doors will open promptly at 2:00 pm,” Clevenger said. “Students and community members will have just over an hour to meet with local and student organizations and candidates before the forum begins at 3:30 pm.”

Eight political organizations at Kent State University and six external organizations have been invited to participate in the event. The Political Science Fair is open to all students, faculty and staff at Kent State University and invites community members to participate as well.
