NCPA Economic Policy Forum & Author Series
On January 21, the NCPA welcomes Tim Pawlenty, former Governor of Minnesota. Pawlenty will be discussing his book Courage to Stand.
Long before he was considered a top prospective presidential candidate for 2012-even before he landed on John McCain's short list of potential running mates in 2008-Pawlenty had already earned legendary status in conservative circles. In his hard-left-leaning home state of Minnesota, the man known as "T-Paw" somehow erased a $4.8-billion budget deficit while simultaneously reforming health care, creating jobs, improving education, and supporting renewable energy reform--all without raising taxes.
In his book, Pawlenty reveals, for the first time, how he found the resolve to get the job done, taking readers all the way back to the lessons he learned as a boy in the gritty meatpacking town of South St. Paul. From the devastating early death of his mother to the struggle to work his way through college and law school and his epic political battles as governor, Pawlenty opens up about his deepest beliefs and shares his vision for a better America.
Copies of Pawlenty's book Courage to Stand will be available for purchase. Pawlenty will sign copies of the book after the event.
Continental breakfast is included. Self-parking is available at the Olive Street entrance.
