Semester in Rewind
Speaking before a packed house at the Patricia and Arthur Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, a Baltimore native, recalled that as a girl, she visited the venue on Wednesday evenings with her mother and on Saturdays with her classmates to hear the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
Presenting the keynote address for the UB School of Law’s 2013 commencement, Pelosi urged graduates to help better society and government: “With your leadership, we must increase the level of civility in politics and reduce the role of money, and when we do—I promise you this—we will elect more women, more minorities, more young people to public office much sooner. That’s a ... wholesome thing for our great country.”
