With the conclusion of both the Republican and Democratic conventions, political eyes now shift toward the first presidential debate Oct. 3 at the University of Denver. Among just a handful of swing states, Colorado is one of two – the other is Nevada – here in the West that both President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney are vying heavily to win in their quest for 270 electoral votes. Join us Thursday, Sept. 13 at 7:30 a.m. in the auditorium of The Denver Post for a panel discussion that explores “How The West Will Be Won: Issues That Will Swing a Swing State.”

Panelists will include: Sharon Lassar, Ph.D., Director of University of Denver Daniels College of Business Accountancy Program, with research specializing in tax policy and practice, including the taxation of individuals, corporations and flow through entities, both domestic and multinational.
