“Meet the New Boss. Same as the Old Boss?”  On Wednesday, October 7th from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Global Campus, 2 E. Center St in Fayetteville, AR.

Join the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at University of Arkansas as we welcome John Brummett to northwest Arkansas for an entertaining evening of political commentary and lively audience discussion.  In 2015, the state joined the likes of Alabama and Oklahoma and went wholesale Republican at the legislative, statewide and federal levels. Has our state really had a revolution or has it turned out, only the name has changed? A perennial favorite at OLLI, John will share his wit and expertise to help answer this question and more about Arkansas politics for both natives and newcomers.
