More details below the fold:
WHAT: Netroots Nation "Welcome to Detroit" Kick Off Party
WHO: Michigan Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer
WHERE: Detroit Beer Companny, 1529 Broadway
WHEN: Wednesday, July 16th, 7:00PM - 10:00PM
SPONSORED BY: Michigan Senate Democrats and the DLCC
ADMISSION: Free with Netroots Nation conference credential
We're pleased to announce that Michigan Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer will be joining us, as well as other special guests. Leader Whitmer (@gretchenwhitmer | Facebook.com/GretchenWhitmer) has courageously led Senate Democrats as they've fought to stop the Tea Party agenda in one of the most extreme right-wing legislatures in the country. If you're unfamiliar with some of Leader Whitmer's best-known moments, just know that she's kind of a rock star:
This year's Netroots Nation Kick Off party is especially important because the entire Michigan state Senate is elected every four years. That means this fall is Michigan voters' first opportunity since 2010 to hold the GOP-led Senate accountable for policies like Right to Work, the Rape Insurance law, and Governor Snyder's massive corporate tax breaks paid for by a tax on seniors' pensions.
We have a chance to kick some of those Tea Partiers to the curb this fall, so please RSVP for the party and sign up for your free drink. And if you can't make it to Netroots this year (or even if you can), please chip in to support Michigan Senate Democrats and the DLCC.
The Koch Brothers will hate you for it.
See you in Detroit!
