Gov. Jan Brewer, Senate President Bob Burns, and Rep. John McComish said they will attend “Arizona Democracy: The Lighter Side,” a ribbing of the year’s most prevalent topics and public figures hosted by KAET/Eight and the Arizona Capitol Times.
The dinner, on Jan. 14 at Eight Arizona PBS’s Studio A at Arizona State University’s downtown campus, will give informed audiences a look at the lighter side of Arizona’s democratic process through fun, good-natured and somewhat politically correct discourse. It’s not a roast, per say, but it will include some ribbing.
The dinner is being held as a fundraiser to support “Horizon,” an independent and in-depth forum for issues across Arizona. The three politicians, who will be joined by two other political leaders who have yet to be named, will be teased by reporters from Horizon’s “Journalists Roundtable” show. Afterward, Brewer, Burns and McComish will return the favor.
“Arizona Democracy: The Lighter Side” will be hosted by Ted Simons of “Horizon” and Ginger Lamb, publisher of Arizona Capitol Times.
The dinner will grant access to decision-makers and engage in intelligent, lighthearted discussion while providing attendees a unique perspective on the personalities who craft laws and make news.
The dinner will be taped and aired at a later date.
Tables are $5,000 each and include a VIP reception and dinner for 10. Only 30 tables are available. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Arizona Capitol Times at firstname.lastname@example.org.
