Hear From Former Congressman Don Manzullo

Former Congressman Don Manzullo recounts key events that occurred during his 20 years of service at Northwest Quarterly’s inaugural “Conversations” event April 19 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Rockford University’s Fisher Memorial Chapel, 5050 E. State St., Rockford.

The event, entitled “Defending Manufacturing & Small Business: An Evening with Don Manzullo,” features an engaging conversation between Manzullo and the editors of “Northwest Quarterly Magazine.” Manzullo will share how well-intentioned ideas in Washington have negative consequences, what it takes to fight back, and how you can work with your legislators to craft policy that works for all.

For 20 years, former Congressman Don Manzullo helped small businesses and manufacturers across America to bust through red tape and push against well-intentioned policy, and he did it with bipartisan support. Whether taking on government procurement, tariffs or international trade, Manzullo fought to keep American businesses competitive in the global market.

After the conversation, a forum will take place allowing small-business owners and manufacturers a chance to share their own concerns about the state of business in today’s environment.

Signed copies of Manzullo’s new book, “Do Nice Guys Run for Congress?” will be available for purchase after the forum. The event is free to the public, but attendees must pre-register by scanning the QR code to the right or by signing up at https://www.northwestquarterly.com/nq-conversations/.
