Noted historian Dr. Phil Roberts keynote speaker at Wyoming Democrats' Nellie Tayloe Ross dinner

For those of you not attending the performance of Detroit poet M.L. Liebler and L.A. musician Peter Lewis at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 26, at the Historic Atlas Theatre in downtown Cheyenne --

This is from Chuck Herz, chairman of the Wyoming Democratic Party:
It is my pleasure to announce that the keynote speaker for the 2011 Nellie Tayloe Ross Banquet will be Dr. Phil Roberts, one of the leading experts in the political history of Wyoming. The main focus of our Party's Central Committee meeting earlier in the day will be strategy - how Wyoming Democrats go about rising up from the electoral hole we've been in for too long to become once again a powerful force in Wyoming politics. In that connection, Dr. Roberts, a University of Wyoming professor, will offer a striking perspective on the state of Wyoming politics today in light of similar eras in the past. You may remember that Dr. Roberts was a Democratic candidate for Wyoming governor in 1998, so he knows politics from the inside as well. We are honored to have such an outstanding speaker highlight the Wyoming Democratic Party's largest annual gathering as the Legislature's general session heads into its final week.

The banquet is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at the Cheyenne Holiday Inn. Tickets are $75 per person. Events kick off at 6 p.m. with a VIP Cocktail Hour with Democratic legislators and other featured guests. Tickets for the VIP Cocktail are $100. No-host cocktails for other guests begin at the hotel at 6 p.m. Buy your tickets now to either or both of these events by clicking here or by calling our headquarters at 800-729-3367.

We have a block of rooms available at the Holiday Inn for only $69, but the deadline to get that rate is Friday, Feb. 11, so please make your reservation now. Call the Holiday Inn at 307-638-4466 and ask for the Wyoming Democratic Party rate (group code WDP), OR reserve your rooms by clicking here.
