Author to speak in Penn Yan

PENN YAN — David Cay Johnston, the author of “Perfectly Legal, the Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich — and Cheat Everybody Else,” will speak at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 in the Yates County Office Building Auditorium on Liberty Street.

His talk is free and open to the public.

Johnston has titled his presentation “Progressive Taxation: The Most Conservative Idea in Western Civilization;” it will be followed by time for questions.

The book grew from his research for The New York Times, and was named “2004 Investigative Book of the Year” by Investigative Reporters and Editors.

Johnston's local appearance is sponsored by the Yates County Progressives; for details, call Vaughn Baker at (315) 536-2652.
