Dukakis to Deliver City Club ‘State of the Nation’ Address in La Jolla

Former Massachusetts governor will speak Feb. 2 at La Jolla Country Day School.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis will focus on the second Obama administration at his annual City Club of San Diego State of the Nation Address on Feb. 2.

The address takes place at 10 a.m. at La Jolla Country Day School. Tickets are $10 for City Club members and La Jolla Country Day parents and $20 for all others. For reservations, call 619-687-3580, or email cityclubofsandiego@prodigy.net.

This is Dukakis' 12th year to deliver the address in La Jolla.

"I consider Governor Dukakis one of America's greatest public servants, as being Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for 12 years and candidate for President of the United States in 1988 would suggest; and Kitty, the Governor's wife, no less an extraordinary person (and also a former City Club speaker)," said George Mitrovich, president of City Club in an annoncement.

Dukakis is a Harvard Law School graduate and U.S. Army veteran. He served four terms with Massachusetts House of Representatives and as governor of the state for two terms started in 1974 and 1982. Four years later he ran for president as the Democratic nominee against George H. W. Bush.

The former politician turned academic is now a professor at Northeastern University in Boston.
