The main topic at our July meeting will be a presentation titled "We the People: The Ratification Debate" with LWV of Dakota County member Frank Sachs. Throughout a series of state ratification conventions emerges a vigorous defense of the new Constitution that became known as The Federalist Papers. Written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, these 85 essays have come to define how our government was meant to function and they created a call for a Bill of Rights. Frank Sachs recently retired from The Blake School where he primarily taught AP U.S. Government & Politics, U.S. Constitutional Law, and American History.
