On Thursday, November 8, host of WBUR's On Point Tom Ashbrook and former ABC News anchor Carole Simpson and Journalism faculty member will moderate a post-election discussion.
Presented in partnership with MassINC, CommonWealth magazine, and WBUR, the 90-minute discussion titled "Behind the Curtain: What Just Happened? What's Next?" will explore the outcomes of the national and state-wide elections and the implications they have on politics and policy, both here and in Washington.
The evening's discussion will consist of two segments:
Simpson will moderate "What Just Happened?"—A look at the outcomes and influencers in the big races two days after the wins and losses, and a look ahead at what might happen politically as a result.
Ashbrook will moderate "What's Next?"—An examination of the policy implications of both the state and national elections: from the fiscal cliff and Obamacare to the Supreme Court.
The event starts at 6:30 pm. The program is free, but general admission seating tickets are required. For free ticket information, visit cutlermajestic.org or call 617-824-8000.
