The next installment of the Ronald Reagan Lecture Series will be held at 7:30 p.m. March 7 at the Cascades Senior Center, 21060 Whitfield Place, Sterling.
Economist and political commentator John Lott will be the featured speaker. An established Second Amendment advocate, Lott holds a doctorate degree from UCLA and is a frequent contributor to Fox News and the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank.
This is the first year the Loudoun County-based Ronald Reagan Lecture Series is operating as a nonprofit group.
Patricia Phillips, the series’ executive director, said her organization, while nonpartisan, aims to advance conservative ideas.
A former district chair for the Loudoun County Republican Committee, Phillips said the challenges facing the U.S. “require 60-minute lectures, not 60-second sound bites,” and the Reagan series provides such a forum.
