Holy Cross College is excited to announce Peter Sonski, American Solidarity Party’s 2024 nominee for President of the United States, will speak on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at 7:00 p.m., in Driscoll Auditorium.  His talk is titled, “Faithful to the Truth” and will highlight his professional career and his twelve plus years as a public servant.  Sonski was invited to campus by the student-led Political Science Society.

Sonski is a New England native, is married with nine adult children and 6 grandchildren. He and his wife live in Connecticut. Sonski graduated from public high school and earned BA and MSM degrees from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. His professional experience is in journalism, public relations, insurance, and business administration. He worked in our nation’s capital for eight years as Director of Communications for the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and previously as Assistant Editor at National Catholic Register.

Sonski recently concluded his second term as an elected member of Connecticut’s Regional School District 17 board of education. He has more than a dozen years’ experience as an elected official, having served previously as municipal board of finance member (chairman) and board of selectmen (city council) member.

Sonski was introduced to the American Solidarity Party during the midterm election in 2018. Considering the ASP an oasis in the political desert, he quickly embraced its principles and platform and publicly identified with the party as an elected official. In May 2023, party members selected him among five contenders in a primary process to be the American Solidarity Party’s 2024 nominee for President of the United States.

Holy Cross College neither supports nor opposes candidates for public office.   The purpose of this event is to educate, to promote civic dialogue, and engagement.
