Dr. Tootle to talk elections in Lindsay

County Republican leader, COS professor Dr. Stephen Tootle to speak Nov. 14 at Lindsay Museum

LINDSAY – After 230 years, American voters might be inclined to think that they have seen it all and maybe we have, but our political life keeps being reconfigured. Have we ever seen anything like Donald Trump? Not all American Presidents have achieved the mythic stature of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt.

On Nov. 6 we headed to the polls, and even though all the candidates are state and local, this election will be, to a certain degree, a referendum on Donald Trump. Dr. Stephen Tootle has been a keen observer of national politics as well as a participant. As a longtime Republican and with the election in the rearview mirror, it will be interesting to hear his reflections on “What happens to the Republican Party now?” Tootle’s talk, titled “Elections Need Not Be Dull,” will be held on Nov. 14 at the Lindsay Museum and Gallery, 165 N. Gale Hill Ave. in Lindsay.

Dr. Tootle teaches history at the College of the Sequoias. He received his Ph.D. from Ohio University in 2004. His articles and commentary have appeared in publications such as National Review, the Claremont Review of Books, Presidential Studies Quarterly, and many others. He is the Vice Chair of the Republican Party of Tulare County, the advisor to the COS College Republicans, and the Chairman of the Log Cabin Republicans of the Sequoias.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for light refreshments followed by the lecture and discussion. This is part of a continuing series of forums put on by the Lindsay Cultural Arts Council. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for beverages and snacks followed by the lecture and then a question and answer session at the Lindsay Museum and Gallery, 165 N. Gale Hill Ave. in Lindsay. The Lindsay Cultural Arts Forum is open to everyone. For more information contact Chuck Sheldon 559-359-5865, Ginny Wilson 559-334-7459 or Don Roark 559-804-5834.
