For anyone interested, I'm appearing on a couple of speaker panels Tuesday, one dealing with economic development, the other First Amendment rights.
First up is a panel discussion from 4 to 5:30 p.m. entitled "Economic Development or Corporate Welfare: Do state and local tax incentives work?"
Others speakers include Jim Allen, head of the Amherst IDA; Brian Reilly, Buffalo's economic development chief; Bruce Fisher, an adjunct prof at Buffalo State College and deputy county executive under Joel Giambra; and Jerry Turcotte of MicroBiz Buffalo.
The session is sponsored by the Partnership for the Public Good and will be held at the Cornell labor School, 237 Main St., Suite 1200.
At 7 p.m., I'll be among the speakers at a panel discussion entitled "On the Front Lines: State Secrets and Journalist Shield Laws/What Next?" The gathering will take place at Cinema at Hallwalls, in Babeville, at 341 Delaware Ave. Jonathon Welch and the folks at Talking Leaves Bookstore are helping to stage the event.
Other speakers will include Joe Finnerty, a top-shelf First Amendment lawyer I've working with over the years, and Geoff Kelly, the editor of Artvoice.
