March 31, 2010

Calvert, a Republican, met with attorneys from Reid & Hellyer, leadership from UC Riverside and local businesspeople in late March for a lunchtime discussion of the issues making headlines across the country, including recent healthcare reform legislation, jobs and the economy.

As the upcoming 2010 election season heats up, Reid & Hellyer hosted visits by the two major candidates running for the 44th Congressional District. Calvert's visit follows a visit by his Democratic challenger, Bill Hedrick, in early February.

Reid &Hellyer Associate Attorney Scott Talkov introduced Calvert and organized the event.

"We are delighted that Congressman Calvert chose to spend part of his time in the district with us," Talkov said. "Given the recent developments in Washington, receiving an update firsthand from the Congressman is very exciting."

Calvert also explained his support for the Iraq war, his position on a more transparent earmark process and his views on foreign relations with Iran and Russia.
