FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON TO SPEAK AT THE SAINT AUGUSTINE AMPHITHEATRE

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON TO SPEAK

AT THE SAINT AUGUSTINE AMPHITHEATRE

MONDAY, MARCH 19, 2012

 

St. Augustine, FL (November 8, 2011) – The St. Johns County Cultural Events Division announced today that Former President Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States, has been confirmed as the featured speaker at The Saint Augustine Amphitheatre on the evening of Monday, March 19, 2012.

 

Since leaving public office in 2000, Former President Clinton has remained a high profile figure of global influence. He is respected worldwide for his insights into national and international affairs and for his humanitarian efforts with the William J. Clinton Foundation to transform the global landscape.

 

His most recent literary project, “Back to Work” was released today, November 8th, and focuses on economic growth, job creation, financial responsibility, resolving the mortgage crisis, and green technology- all issues that affect Americans on a local, national and global level.

 

President Clinton’s appearance will be particularly relevant as it occurs on March 19th, the bicentennial anniversary of the signing of the Spanish Constitution of 1812 (commemorated in St. Augustine by a monument located in Plaza de la Constitucion), creating the perfect setting for President Clinton to speak on the impact of our historically significant community, along with the global impact of democracy.

 

President Clinton left office with the highest end-of-office approval rating of any United States President since World War II, and will be one of many notable U.S. presidents to visit St. Augustine.  Chester Arthur was the first sitting president to appear, while others including Ulysses S. Grant, Warren G. Harding and Theodore Roosevelt all came to St. Augustineafter their terms. Lyndon B. Johnson also made a speaking appearance during his term as Vice President, as a key component of St. Augustine’s 400th anniversary celebration.
