Pelosi To Reflect On Career At Tufts Speech Tuesday

MEDFORD (AP) – Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is slated to reflect on her career during a scheduled speech at Tufts University.

The current House minority leader is scheduled to speak Friday, April 8 as part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the “Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service” at Tufts.

School officials say Pelosi will offer a view of her experiences as the highest ranking female elected official in the nation’s history and her thoughts about the importance of public service.

A brief question-and-answer session will follow her speech.

Pelosi served as Speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011. She was succeeded by Ohio Rep. John Boehner after Republicans took control of the House in January.
