A nationally syndicated columnist, his articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun, Washington Times, National Review, Harper's, Commentary, The (London) Spectator, Le Figaro (Paris), The Guardian, The Sunday Telegraph, and elsewhere. He is also an adjunct fellow of the Hudson Institute and a contributing editor to the New York Sun. His latest book, The Clinton Crack-Up will be available for purchase at the forum. George Marlin a longtime conservative activist in New York, has a problem with Mayor Giuliani. In 1993, Mr. Marlin ran for mayor on the Conservative line against Mr. Giuliani and David Dinkins - once bringing a rubber chicken to a debate where Mr. Giuliani didn't show up. Now, he's put together a 40-page dossier of every "liberal" quote he could find from or about the former mayor, and he's begun mailing it to conservative activists nationwide. Mr. Marlin is author to the book, Fighting the Good Fight: The History of the NY Conservative Party. The book tells how, for forty years, Conservatives have been the guardian of working-class New Yorkers; men and women who subscribe to the believe that to be good citizens it is essential to love family, neighborhood, country and God, and just as important, to respect the ethic of hard work. It is the story of how the Conservative Party has for four decades, lived up to its charter to serve political ideals first. Please R.S.V.P. to this meeting/event.
