BACKGROUND: The Whittemore School, which was chosen by the Kerry campaign to host the event, has a long history as a resource for research and education about business and economic issues. During primary year, the school conducts economic forums with political candidates to discuss their views about the economy, to inform the candidates about local and statewide economic concerns and to make candidate’s positions known to the public.

The Whittemore School, established in 1962 through the efforts of noted industrialist Laurence F. Whittemore, provides degree programs that combine the breadth of a liberal education with the specifics of professional training in business administration; economics; hospitality management and management of technology.
