Kissell and Young Dems at Koury Convention Center in Greensboro

Don't miss two important events this coming Saturday. The Young Democrats of North Carolina will be holding their 2007 Spring Convention in Greensboro with Artur Davis (remember him?) giving the keynote address.

Congressman Brad Miller and Congressman David Price with Larry Kissell

At noon on Saturday there will be a reception fundraiser for Larry Kissell. Tickets are $100 per couple or $50 per person. It will be held in the Koury Center, so will be convenient for conference attendees. I haven't confirmed if you must pay for the convention if you are just going to attend the Kissell reception, but I will check on this. If you can't attend, but would like to offer Larry early support, please visit his web site or go to Act Blue. This is my current page with Larry's new ActBlue account for '07/'08.

The Young Dem convention looks like it is going to be terrific and certainly worth attending. There are more dignitaries attending than I remember seeing at the North Carolina Democratic Convention last July. The basic entry fee is $25 if you are 35 or under or if you are a member of Senior Dems. Teen Dems attend for $20 and f you do not fall within these age groups your rate is $35. You may go here to purchase tickets or donate.

Congressman Artur Davis is the keynote speaker from Alabama's 7th District. He's an enthusiastic Larry Kissell supporter and campaigned for him in Charlotte and promoted him within the DCCC.
