“American Bakers PAC is honored to have Newt Gingrich address American Bakers PAC Members during the 2011 ABA Convention,” said American Bakers PAC Chairman Steve Avera, Flowers Foods. “Speaker Gingrich is an intellectually powerful and dynamic speaker who will share his outlook and vision for America with dinner attendees.”
Newt Gingrich is well-known as the architect of the “Contract with America” that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in 40 years. After he was elected Speaker of the House, he disrupted the status quo by fighting to move power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, the first balanced budget in a generation and an economically vital tax cut.
Gingrich has published twenty-one books including 12 New York Times best-sellers. Gingrich is chairman of the Gingrich Group, a communications and consulting firm that specializes in transformational change, with offices in Atlanta and Washington, D.C. He serves as general chairman of American Solutions for Winning the Future, is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and is a distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Gingrich is also a frequent analyst for Fox News Channel.
“We are very excited to bring such a prominent and well-respected American to San Antonio for this year’s American Bakers PAC Dinner,” said ABA PAC Director Kelly Knowles. “A limited number of high-dollar donors will also be able to meet personally with Mr. Gingrich during a roundtable discussion prior to the dinner. Funds raised will allow American Bakers PAC to support candidates who support bakers in the 2012 election.”
The 2011 American Bakers Association Convention promises to be the premier industry event of the year. Information about registering is available at www.americanbakers.org or by calling 202-789-0300.
