Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, to Participate in Millennial Town Hall


by GU Politics

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) will hold a conversation with students about the issues important to today’s young adults in a town hall-style discussion at Georgetown next week.

The town hall-style event, which takes place April 27 at 1:45 p.m. in the university’s Gaston Hall, is sponsored by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy.

Ryan will deliver brief remarks on his vision for “Building a Confident America,” followed by a question-and-answer session with the university community moderated by Mo Elleithee, the institute’s executive director, and S.E. Cupp, CNN contributor and a member of the institute’s advisory board.

The town hall will be webcast live at politics.georgetown.edu.

“Washington is full of political operatives sitting around trying to figure out how to talk to young people,” Elleithee said. “Speaker Ryan deserves credit for coming to Georgetown to talk with students – sharing his vision for the future, and more importantly, hearing theirs. I have no doubt that he’ll walk away learning as much from Georgetown students as they will from him.”

A Georgetown University ID is required for entry into the event.

Ryan will take questions from Georgetown students in Gaston Hall, and over social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat. Georgetown students are welcome to share questions and join the conversation at @GUPolitics and #RyanAtGU.

Launched in the fall of 2015, the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service is dedicated to reconnecting young people with the idea that politics is a noble vehicle for public service.
