Welcome in the Ides of March with the Douglas Democrats!
Preparations are well under way for the Annual Clinton Carter Dinner to be held Friday, March 15 at Cielo in Castle Pines.
Colorado Speaker of the House, Mark Ferrandino, will be the keynote speaker for the evening. Mark Ferrandino is the state representative for House District 2 in Denver and replaced a Douglas County Republican as speaker in January. Speaker Ferrandino has an outstanding record of advocating for consumers and civil rights in Colorado. He has sponsored legislation allowing state employees to designate their unmarried partners as insurance beneficiaries, helped homeowners threatened with foreclosure keep their homes, and cracked down on payday lenders. Speaker Ferrandino is currently leading the way in the Colorado house for civil unions for gay and lesbian couples.
The Douglas County Democrats will also be honoring three local democrats at the dinner for their stellar contributions to the party including outgoing chairperson, Sarah Mann for her work and commitment to the party.
The Douglas County Democrats will also be honoring former Speaker of the House and current Candidate for Congressional District 6, Andrew Romanoff, for outstanding support of the Douglas County Democratic Party. Andrew Romanoff has been a staunch supporter of the Party, appearing at district meetings, keynoting earlier dinners, and even helping raise money for the party, all prior to running for statewide office.
The fun will begin at 6:30pm with cocktails and a silent auction with items ranging from wine baskets, an airplane ride, and a weekend in the mountains. The dinner is an elegant Roman/Italian buffet catered by Occasions by Sandy. A Shakespearian comedy skit and Debbie Garrity’s moving “Year in Review” video round out the fun. What better way to welcome in the Ides of March than with food, fun, and the Douglas County Democrats.
