Joseph Coletti, fiscal policy analyst for the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh, will lecture on North Carolina's gasoline tax and why we don't need it at Campbell University's Lundy-Fetterman School of Business. The lecture will be held Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 6:30 p.m. in Lynch Auditorium of the School of Business. Admission is $5.00 a person and students are free. The gasoline tax no longer operates under its original intent of raising money for road maintenance, Coletti contends. He will explain why the government may not want to lose this revenue generator and provide reasons for its abolishment. Coletti received a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and a master's from the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies. He has served as editor of newsletters and briefing books on the Japanese economy and U.S.- Japan relations, and has led marketing research and forecasting projects with J.D. Power and Associates in Detroit and Tokyo. Coletti has also served as director of policy and communications for the U.S.-Japan Business Council in Washington, D.C. before joining the Locke Foundation. An open reception will be held following the lecture. To attend the lecture contact Kristi Stratton at (910)-893-1385 or e-mail at [email protected]
