Kucinich is coming to Bainbridge

UPDATE: The Lynwood Center Theatre has been named as the location for Kucinich’s speaking event.
Former presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich is scheduled to speak on Apr. 30 at a yet-to-be named Bainbridge location Lynwood Theatre. He’ll speak from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Event organizer Kat Gjovik has a Facebook page set up with more information about the Ohio congressman’s visit.

Gjovik says Kucinich, a longshot Democratic Party nominee for the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections, will speak about the future of the progressive movement.

Kucinich first caught national attention when he was elected mayor of Cleveland in 1977 at the age of 31. He has built a reputatation for his strongly liberal views. He called for the impeachment of Pres. George Bush and was the only Democratic candidate in the 2008 election who voted against the Iraq invasion.

Kucinich drew a large crowd when he last visited the island in 2004. He also spoke on Bainbridge in 2003.
