League of Women Voters to host economics professorPublished 10:26pm Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Charles Ballard, professor of economics at Michigan State University, will be the speaker at a League of Women Voters lunch meeting at noon Wednesday at Fernwood Botanical Garden, Niles.
The presentation,“Michigan’s Economy: Where Are We and Where Are We Going?” ties in with a League study on the privatization of government services. Ballard is the “go-to” guy on the Michigan and Midwest economy and is a much in -demand speaker. His degrees are from Princeton and Stanford, but Michigan is his home.
Cost of the lunch is $15. Call 695-6491 to make a reservation or stop by Fernwood, 13988 Range Line Rd., Niles.
The deadline for reservations is the close of business Friday.
