I'm pleased to announce that MPD Police Chief Cathy Lanier will be the guest at The Q&A Cafe on Thursday, September 18. Lanier last appeared several years ago, not long after she was appointed to the job by Mayor Adrian Fenty, and she was a popular and engaging guest. That's to be expected.
Lanier was reappointed by Fenty' successor, Mayor Vincent Gray. What will happen with Muriel Bowser? Will DC's next mayor prevail on Lanier to stay in the job or will Lanier seek another role in her professional life? At one point there was speculation she would run for mayor, but she put that down rather fast. Lanier would be the first to tell you she's a cop's cop.
The Q&A Cafe tapes at The George Town Club during lunch. The fee is $35, all inclusive of food and soft beverages. Seating begins at noon, the program starts soon after and we are usually done by 1:15. For reservations: 202-333-9330.
October 17 the program focuses on the mid-term elections and the economy with guest Gregory Valliere, the chief politcal strategist for the Potomac Research Group.
We have other interesting guests in the pipeline and we will announce them as soon as they are confirmed.
