Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer will make an appearance in Springfield on February 15th. Fleischer served as press secretary for President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2003. He has since become a prominent political commentator and author.
Fleischer will speak at the Sangamo Club Ballroom during a 12:00 pm lunch, promoting his book, "Suppression, Deception, Snobbery, and Bias: Why the Press Gets So Much Wrong―And Just Doesn't Care." This event is sure to interest political enthusiasts and anyone interested in gaining insight into the inner workings of the White House.
As press secretary during 9/11, Fleischer was responsible for communicating the White House's message to the American people during one of the most critical times in our nation's history. He has a wealth of experience in politics and communication, making him an expert on the intersection of media and politics. His book is likely to offer an interesting perspective on how the press handled the events of 9/11, and the general topic of political communication.
In addition to his work in the White House, Fleischer has worked as a political commentator, providing analysis on news programs and writing columns for various publications. And he is a regular guest on Fox News and a contributor to the Washington Examiner.
This event is hosted by the Sangamon County Republican Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting the Republican Party's values and ideals in Sangamon County and supporting Republican candidates running for office in the area. Mayoral hopeful Misty Buscher will also be in attendance at the event to share her vision for Springfield. Tickets are $250, which admits one plus a guest. Tickets and more information can be found on the Sangamon County Republican website.
