A visit from the attorney general

To the editor,

Phil Weiser, Colorado’s attorney general, is coming to Durango on Sat., May 11, as the keynote speaker at the annual Roosevelts’ Dinner. Phil was elected to office in November 2018. He boasts an impressive resume, including clerking for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and working in the Obama administration. Since being elected as Colorado’s attorney general, he has joined other states in suing the Trump administration to block its efforts to declare a national emergency at the southern border and to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Whether your concern is consumer protections, reproductive options, DREAMers, LGBTQ rights, gun safety, or clean air and water, I know you will find Phil to be an engaging and informative speaker. All are invited to join us for the annual Roosevelts’ Dinner on Saturday from 5-8 p.m. in the FLC Student Union Ballroom for a great program with Phil as the keynote speaker. Tickets are $75 each and can be purchased online at laplatadems.org. All proceeds will go to the local Democratic Party to assist local candidates and outreach efforts. (If you are a student interested in attending, please contact us at events@laplatadems .org for discounted tickets.)

– David Albrechta, Durango
