Washington, DC – American Solutions for Winning the Future announced today that former Arkansas Governor and Republican Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee will lead a “Solutions Day” workshop in Manchester, NH on Saturday, September 29. American Solutions, founded by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, is a new, non-partisan organization dedicating to creating solutions to address the challenges facing America.
Governor Huckabee's workshop will be at the Institute of Politics at St. Anselm's College from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT. His workshop is part of a series of 20 Solutions Day workshops that are being held nationwide in all fifty states from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. EDT on September 29. The Solutions Day workshops will be broadcast on the internet, on DISH Network channel 219, and on DirectTV channel 577.
Huckabee's workshop is entitled “Transforming Education with Art, Music, and Personalized Learning; Transforming Health Care with Wellness and Ownership”.
Governor Huckabee, who is a past chairman of the Education Commission on the States, said: “We need art and music in our schools to give children the tools they need -- what I call "weapons of mass instruction" -- to compete in the 21st Century. This will allow us to transform education and offer personalized learning that reflects students' passions and ambitions and unleashes their creativity."
Huckabee, who has made health care a centerpiece of his presidential platform, said, “We must also move from employer-based health care to consumer-based health care, with a strong emphasis on prevention and early diagnosis. These changes will bring down costs, and increase accessibility for all Americans.”
“Governor Huckabee's willingness to talk about new ideas and solutions for improving our country is commendable,” said American Solutions General Chairman Newt Gingrich. “ His workshop on education and health chare is a great addition to our schedule of nationwide Solutions Day workshops.”
In addition to the Manchester workshop, American Solutions will host workshops across New Hampshire in Laconia, Gorham, Concord, Hampstead, Keene, Plymouth, Milford, Rye, and Durham.
Attendance is free, but reservations are requested. To reserve seats and for more information on workshop locations, please go to www.AmericanSolutions.com/NewHampshire or call 1-866-580-6398. American Solutions invited all the presidential candidates in both parties to lead a workshop.

Its General Chairman is former Speaker Newt Gingrich.
