To everyone who attended and supported this year’s Evening at the Square, we can’t thank you enough! Pictures can be viewed on Facebook!

Join American Public Square for our second annual Evening at the Square fundraising event, featuring American political consultant and current ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd. The night will include a conversation with Matthew, heavy hors d’oeuvres and all the civility you can give and take!


Matthew Dowd has worked both sides of the aisle, but now considers himself a diehard Independent. Matthew’s political work includes serving as the chief strategist on two winning re-election efforts – for Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006 and for President George W. Bush in 2004. His innovative approach on the 2004 campaign led the bi-partisan American Association of Political Consultants to name him Strategist of the Year.

Matthew currently serves as chief political analyst for ABC News where he appears on This Week, Good Morning America, and Nightline, and writes a regular column for various publications. He covers not only politics but cultural, economic, and spiritual trends as well.

Over the last 25 years, Matthew has been an active entrepreneur in Austin, Texas founding three companies which have been highly successful, all of which he sold to his partners to pursue other endeavors.

He is co-author of the New York Times bestseller Applebee’s America: How Successful Political, Business and Religious Leaders Connect with the New American Community.
