Tuesday December 16, 2014
Tom Ridge, former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, will tackle the issue on everyone’s minds when he addresses the Forum Club: How safe is America from terrorism? Following the terrorist attacks of 911 in 2001, the former Pennsylvania governor was named by President George W. Bush as the first Assistant to the President for Homeland Security. Two years later, Ridge became the first Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The creation of the country’s 15th Cabinet Department marked the largest reorganization of government since the Truman administration. The noon program is being held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, 650 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.
