On Tuesday, December 13th, I will be hosting or participating in multiple events at Tobies Restaurant & Bakery in Hinckley, Minnesota beginning at 6:00 p.m. The first two guests to commit to the event are 10th Judicial District Judge Tad Jude, elected in 2010 to serve our region until 2016, and talk radio host Sue Jeffers. I will announce more special guests closer to the event.
As I am also the chairman of the Pine County Republicans, I will be chairing a meeting of that group at 6:00 p.m. From there, I believe Simply Right will hold a brief reception with that group's special guests. The reception will be exclusive to members or guests of Simply Right. (If you would like to get on the guest list for Simply Right, let me know!)
After the reception I would anticipate the Pine County Republicans and Simply Right holding a joint event, open to the general public, that includes an informational seminar on local issues and on Minnesota's February 7 caucus. I would foresee starting the seminar at about 7:30 p.m. This order of events is subject to change.
I will only have an opportunity to be back in Minnesota for a short time before I begin my next position in Washington D.C., so I am hoping to make the evening a memorable one. A primary focus of the festivities will be the February 7 Republican Caucus in Minnesota.
I am honored by the fact that the Pine County Republicans selected me to convene the event, which we anticipate will draw more than 300 people. If things go well, I will be coming back from Washington that week to convene the event. In case you're wondering where the February 7 caucus in Pine County will be held, everyone in the county will be meeting at the Hinckley High School that evening at 7:00 p.m. Miscellaneous festivities are scheduled to begin at 6:00, so plan to come early!
