David Mclennan"I enjoy helping those in the business community and civic organizations understand how politics at the state and national level affect them. One of the most interesting courses I developed for the Wake County League of Women Voters was about public policy issues in the state — education, transportation, etc.— that went beyond the basic talking points that seem to dominate popular discussions. I help people think beyond their partisan orientations to examine public policy and elections in an objective way."
