Michigan's Next Secretary of State Speaking at May Dinner

The person who wants to be Michigan's next secretary of state will be one of the speakers at the Livingston County Democrats' annual Winans Dinner.

Jocelyn Benson, election law professor at Wayne State University and founder of the Richard Austin Center on Election Law and Administration, will speak at the event scheduled for Sunday, May 3, at Lakelands Golf and Country Club in Hamburg Township.

Benson has recently opened an exploratory committee to seek the Democratic party nomination for Michigan Secretary of State in 2010. And she has a website up.

Benson has made protecting and advocating for fair elections an important part of her life. In 2005, she helped the Democratic National Committee establish its first nationwide Election Protection effort.

Announcements on other special guests for the evening are coming soon so be sure to make your reservations. Early-bird tickets are $50, a $10 savings off the regular price. Call (810) 229-4212 or email for more information.
