A representative from Veterans for Peace just notified us.
“So here is your chance to let one of the master minds behind the bail out of Wall Street and the Banks get a piece of your mind – Geithner is one of the architects of the Bail Outs or rather largest transfer/theft of working folks wealth into the hand of the 1% while the 99% watches as their schools close, costs in healthcare rises, jobs disappear, new jobs at lower wages, home foreclosures increase, leaving us all with little hope for the future, unless we occupy, occupy occupy and run these crooks out of town and out of office.”
Special Event! On Wednesday, April 25, City Club of Portland is honored to host a wide-ranging conversation on the state of the economy with U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, with a special introduction by Portland Mayor Sam Adams. David Miller, of OPB’s Think Out Loud, will guide the conversation.
Timothy Geithner has served as Secretary of the United States Department of the Treasury since the beginning of the Obama administration in 2009. Secretary Geithner first joined the Department of Treasury in 1988 and worked in three administrations for five Secretaries of the Treasury in a variety of positions. This is Secretary Geithner’s first visit to Portland as Treasury Secretary.
