Mark Warner Town Hall Summary Transcript

Mark Warner starts with an introduction, telling us about himself and then moves on to the questions portion from the George Mason University Student Government President, Cam Layton. The last portion of the Town Hall ends with a Q&A with the crowd.

Warner addresses the fact that there is racial and educational inequality in our society. Growing up, he got 3 chances to succeed in his career; he claims that if he was not white and well educated, he would not get these chances that resulted in him making it to where he wants to be professionally.

 The topic then shifted to student debt. Warner believes that student debt delays our life events (savings, investments, marriage, etc.) and it can shape the way we live and that is why this topic is so important and is also why he decided to come in to talk about it.

Warner was directed with a question in regards to making college tuition debt free. He responded by saying that the problem with making tuition free for colleges is that it could increase the amount of national debt because of increasing interest rates. Countries such as Sweden and Germany have it different because of the costs our education system faces in comparison to theirs. Warner would love to make it to that point down the line, but making college free instantly is not the preferred method for our younger generations.
