On the House: A Washington Memoir
John Boehner, 53rd speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Chicago
Local Time: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

John Boehner was a small business owner when he first decided to run for elected office after witnessing what he considered the negative effects of “high taxes and red tape” on American entrepreneurs. After two decades in office, Boehner became Speaker of the House in 2011 and immediately found himself in opposition to President Obama’s vision for America. In On the House, Boehner reflects on his time in Congress, recounting the lessons of success and failure he has learned from leaders – from Gerald Ford to Joe Biden – he has encountered.

John Boehner is the former Speaker of the House of Representatives (2011-2015). From 1991 until his resignation in October 2015, Boehner represented the Eighth Congressional District of Ohio as a Republican. In Congress, Boehner’s stated goals were a “smaller, less costly, and more accountable federal government.” Since 2016, he has been a senior strategic advisor at Squire Patton Boggs LLP.

Moderated by Liz Brailsford, WACDFW President & CEO.
