Starbucks CEO hosts town hall on politics
Starbucks CEO Schultz takes out national ads, hosts forum to urge political change
By The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz changed how America drinks coffee. Now, he wants to change the political system.

The head of the coffee giant says the nation's leaders have failed to represent the needs of all its citizens and created a "crisis of confidence" that is wreaking havoc on the economy. Schultz says he wants to give a voice to all people by hosting a national telephone forum on Tuesday.

Schultz is running ads in the New York Times and USA Today ahead of the event. The ads will feature an open letter urging U.S. citizens to insist politicians end their hyper-partisan behavior. This comes weeks after he called on other CEOs to halt contributions to U.S. political campaigns until the nation's leaders become financially disciplined and stop their political wrangling.
