“This year’s conference will consist of two panels. The first group of panelists will answer questions regarding the outcome of the state and local elections and certain issues of interest to our Commonwealth,” explained Institute for Public Service Coordinator Linda Campos. “The second group will discuss the outlook for the upcoming national elections and give their opinions of the races and top issues for 2016.”
