Communications expert Mark Weaver has advised Ronald Reagan and briefed the national press corps on high-profile prosecutions by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Now he’s bringing a new message — Attention, Independent Voters: Barack Obama and John Boehner Are Stalking You — to Cal U.

Weaver will share his insights on the current political scene at 11 a.m. April 26 in Room 116, Duda Hall, during a talk sponsored by the campus chapter of the American Democracy Project.

Weaver is a national communications expert with more than two decades of experience counseling clients at the national level and in 16 states.

He has served as the deputy attorney general of Ohio, as assistant director of public affairs for the U.S Department of Justice, and as a communications executive at firms in Washington, D.C., and the New York City area.

Throughout his career, Weaver has provided speech coaching, news media counsel and crisis communications services to public officials, major corporations, universities and nonprofit organizations.

An experienced First Amendment attorney, he has been interviewed by national media outlets including 60 Minutes, Nightline, CNN, FOX News, USA Today, the New York Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio and Time magazine.

Weaver’s talk at Cal U is free and open to the public. Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.

The American Democracy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative focused on higher education’s role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens. This ADP event is co-sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and by Cal Campaign Consultants.
