Visitor Wednesday 10/15/14

Ladies and gentlemen...I just received word Friday after lunch that a gubernatorial candidate will be coming Wednesday 10/15/14 in to speak with periods 3 & 2! 
His name is Neel Kashkari...he is a challenger running against current incumbent governor Jerry Brown. 
PER 2: Please instead of Ch.11 & the Edmodo post, study him, come prepared to ask him questions about where he stands on issues YOU care about!
1) he has already served in government as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Department, worked under Hank Paulson during the economic meltdown, develop and oversaw TARP (the bail out). Obama kept him on four six months because his role was so important in maintaining stability in the transition. And, 2) of course, he’s now running for Governor.

PER 3: the Edmodo Post is still due, but please make sure to review the links below and come prepared. 

PER 6: I completely forgot to give you the study guide, so you lucked out. 
If you already answered the Edmodo question or read Ch.11, awesome, you're ahead of the game! Even though you won't be able to see the guest speaker, please read the links below to learn more about the governor race in this upcoming election.
