Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that Congressman Gibbs would be speaking in Peirce Pub. He will actually be speaking in Peirce Lounge.
Here in our secluded village, we often see those crazy Washington politicians on the teevee and read about the crazy things they say on the Internets, but we don’t normally get to see them live and up close. Hell, even Rick Santorum didn’t dare get closer than C-Bus (and knowing how most Kenyon students would react to him, that was probably a legitimately intelligent decision on his part—as they say, even a stopped clock is right twice a day).
But tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. in Peirce Lounge, that all changes! Bob Gibbs, who represents Ohio’s 18th District (that’s us!) in the U.S. House, will be stopping by to speak and answer questions. (First question: why couldn’t you come during Common Hour? This poli sci major has class through 11!) After the jump, everything you need to know about Gibbs so you’ll be an informed constituent when he arrives. (Note: If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP to Jami Ingledue at email@example.com, due to the limited space in the Lounge.)
