Local Democrats will have an opportunity at this year’s fall picnic to hear from the head of the state party.

Brandon Dillon is the Chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party. On Saturday, September 9th he will be the guest of honor at the Livingston County Democrat’s fall picnic, held at the Howell Nature Center. Dillon will be accompanied by Pat Miles, who is seeking the party nomination for attorney general, and candidates seeking the nomination for 8th District Congress. Proceeds from the event will be shared with Stiggy’s Dogs and Women Supporting Women Veterans. Three levels of sponsorships, $75, $125, and $250 are available and will help honor veterans and support those organizations.
