Please join us at 6PM on October 1 at the Red Lion Bellevue to Discover the Discovery Institute!
Our guest speaker Steve Buri joined Discovery Institute in 2000 as Executive Director and was appointed president in 2011. He was worked in various capacities in local, state and federal government including as a senior staff member to U.S. Senator Slade Gorton. In 2009 he founded the Roanoke Conference, a statewide political conference designed to connect activists and elected officials with students and young professionals.
Founded in 1991 by Bruce Chapman and George Gilder, Discovery Institute is headquartered in Seattle but has scholars and fellows all over the country and internationally. Steve Buri explains: “Discovery Institute is more than a think tank. While we still maintain an interest in public policy, we are increasingly a cultural institution — one that examines and challenges the worldview assumptions and cultural influences that drive public policy.”
In addition to hearing from Mr. Buri, ERC has invited Republicans running for local offices in the November general election to come to the meeting and tell us about their campaigns.
