State Rep. Ted James will be the guest speaker at the Press Club of Baton Rouge on Monday, Aug. 9. James, a COVID-19 survivor, will address the latest responses to the pandemic and review the unproductive veto override session that resulted in two colleagues losing their committee chair responsibilities.

Press Club meets on Mondays in the ballroom at the Drusilla Seafood Restaurant, which is located at the Drusilla Shopping Center at Drusilla Drive and Jefferson Hwy. Lunch, which is a sit-down meal served at noon, is $20 for members and $25 for nonmembers. For everyone’s safety, masks are required except when seated. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.

The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and news reporters are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
