Ron Paul to Speak at Colorado Mesa University on Tuesday
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Officials at Colorado Mesa University are preparing for a rare visit from Dr. Ron Paul on Tuesday.
The republican politician is expected to speak about the constitution and our rights during his speech called "Liberty Defines the Future of Freedom."
Officials say this is one of his only appearances in the state this year.
The former presidential candidate has a new book out, focusing on the education system. So officials are looking forward to students hearing his speech and getting involved.
“The energy of our youth is really all that we have left to do something really great in government,” said Tisha Casida, owner of Imagine That. “I think that a lot of people, especially the federal level, have been representatives for so long that they may be out of touch with what we would call reality, and out of touch with what normal, blue-collar working Americans, working students have to face.”
The event is scheduled to start Tuesday at 4 p.m. at the Colorado Mesa University Ballroom.
It’s free and open to the public, but tickets are first come-first serve. You can register at ImagineThat911.com.
