Clinton campaign stops at Columbus State for town meeting
Sen. Hillary Clinton listens as Tom Robbins, professor in Architecture, discusses Columbus State’s certificate program in sustainable design and building. In the center is Jason White, a graduate of the Construction Management program, who talked about his return to college to start a new career, after being injured and losing his savings to medical bills.
Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign came to Columbus State on Friday, Feb. 22, to hold an invitation-only town hall meeting in the WD Ballroom. A crowd of 350–400 heard from several students, faculty and alumni about various issues, which Sen. Clinton then addressed, such as health care, education, retraining, jobs, and the housing crisis. All of the presidential campaigns are currently focusing on Ohio, where primaries will be held March 4. President Moeller introduced Sen. Clinton, who responded, “Thank you Madame President . . . I really like the sound of that!” The Clinton campaign leased the Ballroom on Thursday for the event and invited all guests to attend.
