    “Economic Equality Event to Include Economic Policy Experts as well as Speakers for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in a Bipartisan Forum” The Delta Caucus invites anyone in the Democratic Party of Arkansas network to an event on economic equality issues,  August 16 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Arkansas State Capitol Rotunda. It will include experts on economic development and then a debate on the Presidential race, with Sen. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock) speaking in favor of Hillary Clinton, and Bud Cummins (R-Little Rock), Chairman of the Arkansas Presidential campaign for Donald Trump, speaking for Mr. Trump.We will have another segment of the program featuring experts on economic equality and related issues, including Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, Arkansas Economic Development Commission, Arkansas Hospitals Association, Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance, Mireya Reith of the Arkansas Board of Education, and a speaker on transportation/infrastructure improvements.The Republican and Democratic Presidential nominees will be given equal opportunities to state why they support their candidate on key issues like job creation, economic equality and growth, investments in transportation and other infrastructure, health care, hunger and nutrition, and economic, racial and gender equality. This will naturally include substantial attention to Arkansas issues since we are meeting in Little Rock, but will focus on national issues due to the focus on the Presidential election. This is bipartisan and we want to hear from both sides equally.This event is free, but to gain reserved seating at the vast, majestic Arkansas Capitol Rotunda you need to RSVP to Lee Powell beforehand by email to leepowell@delta.comcastbiz.net .
