A group of 15 citizens from Tübingen, Germany, Ann Arbor’s first sister city (1965), will visit Ann Arbor the week BEFORE the Midterm Elections.
The goal of the group is to speak with people and listen to people and learn about the 2018 Midterm Elections.
These 2018 Midterm Elections have taken some bizarre and unexpected turns, but also kindled new interest in politics and in running for office.
Two of Tübingen’s 40 (!) City Council members, Susanne Bächer and Berndt Rüdiger Paul, will present Tübingen’s ideas on development, energy use, and immigration.
Mayor Christopher Taylor and councilpersons Zachary Ackerman, Anne Bannister, and Chip Smith will discuss these same topics as they are debated in Ann Arbor.
Come and engage with the speakers from Tübingen and Ann Arbor as they seek solutions for today’s many challenges!
Panel Discussion, Thursday, November 1, 7:00 – 8:30 pm, at SPARK Central Innovation Center, 330 E. Liberty, Lower Level.
The cities are on different continents, but the problems to be dealt with are amazingly similar and seek the same urgent solutions.
