Politics Matter

On Tuesday, April 22, 2014 The New Haven County Bar Association’s Public Service Committee held Politics Matter in the Quinnipiac University School of Law’s Grand Courtroom in Hamden, Connecticut. 120 New Haven County high school students participated in a panel discussion with distinguished guests from across the political spectrum that addressed the importance of getting involved in the political process early, often, and in a sustained way. Panelists included: Mayor Scott Jackson of Hamden; John Dankosky, WNPR host; Jennifer Alexander, CEO of ConnCan; Mike Freda, first Selectman - North Haven; Isaias T. Diaz, former Chairman of the Connecticut Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission; and Samaia Hernandez, Governor Malloy’s press secretary. These guests shared their political stories and experiences with the audience and engaged in a question and answer session about the political process and various general political issues. Brad Saxton, Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus, moderated the event.
