With America’s 2016 presidential campaign heating up, Alabama Farmers Federation members can hear from a nationally recognized expert about the presidency as an author, commentator and member of the first family.
Michael Reagan, son of America’s 40th president, will be the guest speaker at the Federation’s 94th Annual Meeting Dec. 7 in Montgomery.
Federation President Jimmy Parnell said he thinks members will enjoy Reagan’s insight on issues that will shape the election and nation’s future.
“Michael Reagan is more than Ronald Reagan’s son, he’s a veteran of American politics with more than 30 years as a commentator,” Parnell said. “He shares our members’ values and works to make the world a better place through charities and efforts to change public policy.”
Members of FarmPAC 2018, who’ve contributed more than the suggested $2 a year to the Federation’s political action committee, will be invited to meet Reagan at a 6 p.m. reception in the Montgomery Convention Center prior to his keynote address at 7:30 p.m. in the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre.
Reagan, who is the adopted son of President Reagan and actress Jane Wyman, hosted a live radio show for 26 years. It was the first long-form political talk show presented by Premier Radio Networks. He is the author of several successful books, including his autobiography, On the Outside Looking In. His latest book, “The New Reagan Revolution” reveals new insights into the life, thoughts and actions of his father.
He serves as president of The Reagan Legacy Foundation and serves on the board of the John Douglas French Alzheimer’s Foundation. In 2005, he established the Michael Reagan Center for Advocacy and Research in partnership with Arrow Child and Family Ministries.
The Christian organization conducts research to advocate for public policies that benefit the safety, stability and well-being of children and families, particularly those served by public and private child welfare systems.
