KEVORKIAN TO HOLD FIRST TOWN HALL MEETING
July 31 2008
Congressional candidate Jack Kevorkian, who gained fame in the 1990s
after being convicted of second-degree murder for his role in an
assisted suicide, will hold his first town hall meeting Friday.
Kevorkian is running as an independent in the 9th Congressional
District against U.S. Rep. Joe Knollenberg, R-Bloomfield Township, and
Democrat Gary Peters, a former state senator and lottery commissioner.
At the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Birmingham Community
House, 380 South Bates in Birmingham, Kevorkian will discuss his
philosophy on foreign and domestic affairs, the economy and what he
plans to do if elected.
Kevorkian, who served more than eight years in prison before his
release last June, admitted to participating in more than 130 assisted
suicides during the 1990s.
