The mission of The Rotary Club of Westchester is to advance understanding, goodwill and peace.

It seems only fitting, then, for the club to turn its attention to the strife and havoc we call American presidential politics.

On Wednesday the club welcomes Loyola Marymount University political science professor Michael Genovese to provide analysis and commentary on the American electoral process as well as the current battle for the White House. His topic: “Is This Any Way to Elect the Most Powerful Leader in the World?”

President of the World Policy Institute at Loyola Marymount University, Genovese has written more than 40 books about American leadership and has served as The Washington Center’s scholar in residence for several national political conventions and the 2008 presidential inauguration.

“Given Professor Genovese’s extensive background in presidential politics and leadership, he is the perfect individual to speak about the intense political climate in which we currently find ourselves,” said Mary Tabata, president of The Rotary Club of Westchester.

Genovese speaks during the club’s weekly luncheon at the Crowne Plaza LAX Hotel.
