Antrim Grange hosts political science speaker

Wednesday’s program meeting of the Antrim Grange #98 is entitled “The Grange and Gridlock in Washington.” It will be presented by guest speaker and Antrim resident Stephen Ullman.

His talk will center around the following themes:

Events during Antrim summers, which led him to choose a career in teaching political science; the history of the grange and its role in shaping public policy; the diminishing role of agriculture advocacy groups; the problems which groups such as the grange are having in getting a farm bill out of the current Congress; the role of interest groups in American national government and politics; and what’s more the gridlock in Washington.

Ullman is a multi-decorated professor of political science and international studies, having joined the staff at the State University of New York at Brockport in 1970. His distinct sense of humor and unique teaching style will be sure to captivate and engage the audience.

This event will take place at the Antrim Town Hall at 7 p.m. Grangers, historians, agriculturalists and the public are all welcome.

Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the program.
