May 24, 2011 — Des Moines, Iowa
The Greater Des Moines Partnership announced today that they will be hosting presidential candidate Mitt Romney this Friday as part of a kick-off event of the 2012 Presidential Candidate Series. The event will be held at the State Historical Building near the East Village in Des Moines, Iowa, from noon to 1:00 p.m. Sponsors of the event also include: Mediacom, IowaPolitics.com and the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
As the election season heats up in Iowa, candidates will be extended invitations to be a part of the series and given an opportunity to meet with and address Central Iowans prior to the Iowa Caucus. The Friday event is open to the public and free of cost.
Martha Willits, CEO and President of the Greater Des Moines Partnership said, “Iowans are intensely proud and passionate of their role in helping to select our nation’s leader every four years. Our ‘first in the nation’ status also carries great responsibility to become acquainted with the candidates, educated on the issues, and vocal on the issues important to Iowa voters. That’s why we are pleased to partner with local and statewide groups to host this Des Moines-area series.”
Those in attendance will have an opportunity to submit questions using social media on the Partnership’s Facebook and Twitter sites.
The address for the State Historical Building is, 600 East Locust Street in Des Moines. Parking is free and available in adjacent parking lots north of Grand Avenue.
