Power of We Hosts Bipartisan Discussion with Former Congressmen

Florida State University’s Power of WE and The Village Square partnered to host the third installment of the Power of WE’s Shared Spaces Series on Feb. 13, focusing on “Why Gridlock Rules Washington and How We Can Solve the Crisis?”

Members of the FSU and greater Tallahassee community watched as two political rivals — former Congressmen David Jolly (R-Florida) and Patrick Murphy (D-Florida) — joined forces across the aisle toward a bipartisan good. Carol Weissert, FSU’s LeRoy Collins Eminent Scholar and chair of civic education and political science, moderated the discussion.
