This free town hall meeting will take place on Friday, November 4th, at 6:30 PM.
It will be held at the Montclair State University Conference Center, an elegant venue located on the 7th floor of University Hall. Doors open at 6:00 PM, and guests are invited to park in the Red Hawk Deck on campus.
Stein has largely based her campaign on uncompromising positions on the environment, opposition to big banks and Wall Street, defense contractors, and the pharmaceutical industry, but a new report suggests her she has profited off investments in those sectors.
“According to the financial disclosure form that she filed with the United States Office of Government Ethics on March 30, 2016, Stein and her husband, Richard Roher, have investments (with the exception of real estate) worth anywhere from $3,832,050 to $8,505,000,” says a story posted on The Daily Beast.
Stein has between $500,004 to $1,100,000 invested in funds that hold large stakes in Phillip Morris International, the tobacco company that makes Marlboro and 17 other cigarette brands. Stein also listed between $50,001 and $100,000 in Merck stock, a pharmaceutical giant that paid a record fine for over-billing Medicaid.
Stein, a Harvard-educated physician, has run for office seven times, including two unsuccessful races for Massachusetts Governor and a 2012 presidential race, where she received 469,501 votes. Polls not show her trailing Libertarian Gary Johnson for a likely fourth place finish with two percent of the national vote.
