News from the Laramie County Democrats

At the Laramie County Democrats' meeting last night at the Plains Hotel, party chairman Mike Bell announced that Saturday, March 8, is the date for the county convention. It will be held at the University of Wyoming Family Practice Center, 18th St. and Pebrican, Cheyenne. County Dems need to attend the convention if you're interested in becoming a delegate to the state convention on Memorial Day weekend in Jackson. There, the delegates to the August 2008 Democratic National Convention will be selected. Wyoming is allowed 14 delegates and four super-delegates for the Denver gathering. These latter delegates include Wyoming Democratic Party Chair John Millin, Gov. Dave Freudenthal, and the state's two national committee members.

Mike also announced that the annual Nellie Tayloe Ross dinner will be held March 1 and the legislative reception March 7.

The county Democrats will share a new downtown office with the state party at 117 W. 17th St., next door to the Wyoming Epilspesy Foundation offices. No hours have been set, so dial in later for that info.
