LYNCHBURG, VA—Political activist and author of the New York Times best-seller Thieves in High Places: They’ve Stolen Our Country and It’s Time to Take it Back Jim Hightower, will present his own fiery and funny views on ethics in government on Thursday, February 19th at 8:00 P.M. in Houston Memorial Chapel on the campus of Randolph-Macon Woman’s College. This event is free and open to the public.

Twice elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Hightower believes that the true political spectrum is not right to left but top to bottom, and he has become a leading national voice for those who are disenfranchised with the current political environment and “the Washington and Wall Street powers at the top.”

Hightower broadcasts daily radio commentaries that are carried in more than 100 commercial and public stations, on the web, on Armed Forces Radio, Radio for Peace International, One World Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio. In addition, he publishes a populist political newsletter, The Hightower Lowdown, which now has more than 100,000 subscribers and is the fastest growing political publication in America. The Lowdown has received both the Alternative Press Award and the Independent Press Association Award for best national newsletter.

A highly sought after public speaker, Hightower delivers more than one hundred speeches a year to students, environmental groups, farm and food, organizations, and many others.
