SGA official attends national political meeting

Individuals from across the United States convened in New York on Jan. 14. The goal of the conference was to encourage decision makers to stop fighting and start fixing.

In the past year, No Labels has released two action plans with reforms to free Washington from gridlock: Make Congress Work! and Make the Presidency Work!

No Labels aims to increase governmental efficiency and productivity through policy reforms. In the past, the group has called for reforming the filibuster and encouraging Congress to have five-day work weeks.

SGA Administrative Vice President Cain Alvey attended the Meeting to America Work at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

The agenda for the meeting included several guest speakers from the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

Jonathan Miller, Kentucky’s former state treasurer, is a co-founder of No Labels. Other co-founders include Lisa Borders, Nancy Jacobson, Mark McKinnon, John Avlon, Bill Galston, Kiki McLean, David Walker, Ron Shaich and Clarine Nardi Riddle. Former Gov. Jon Huntsman and Sen. Joe Manchin are the new national leaders of No Labels and the movement.
