Voters’ Choice—What’s Next?

This fall—no matter who prevails—Election Day results will have far-reaching effects.

The next Fifth Friday luncheon on November 22 will feature Brigid Callahan Harrison and Peter Woolley, both highly-acclaimed observers of the political process, who will weigh in on how those results will affect Bergen County.

Presented by the Volunteer Center of Bergen County’s Bergen LEADS civic leadership program, Fifth Friday is a powerful networking and learning event that attracts leaders from every sector in Bergen County.  The November 22 event will run from 11:30 am to 2 pm and be held at the Stony Hill Inn, in Hackensack.  (This date is actually the fourth Friday in November, due to the Thanksgiving holiday the next week.)
Brigid Callahan Harrison is Professor of Political Science and Law at Montclair State University. A frequent commentator in print and electronic media on US politics, she provides regular political analysis to major news outlets and writes a weekly column on New Jersey Politics in the Sunday edition of the Record.

Peter Woolley is Professor of Comparative Politics at Fairleigh Dickinson University. He is co-founder and executive director of FDU’s independent survey research group, PublicMind. His research in public opinion and his political commentary have been cited in news outlets from the Sydney Morning Herald to the Washington Post and the Trenton Times, from NJN to CNN and in newspapers from Alaska’s Ketchikan Daily News to the Miami Herald

The discussion will be moderated by William “Pat” Schuber, former Bergen County Executive and Bergen LEADS seminar director.
Tickets are $40.00 and must be purchased in advance by registering online at or by calling 201-489-9454 Ext. 112.

Presenting sponsor of the 2013 Fifth Friday series is PNC Wealth Management.   Fifth Friday is also supported by TD Bank, Archer & Greiner PC, the Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce, Synetek Solutions, (201) Magazine and The Record.  Sponsorships for the November 22nd event are available.
