Brad Miller comes to Carrboro

My husband Brian Russell and I are hosting an informal reception for Congressman Brad Miller to meet local bloggers and talk politics. Although he doesn't represent our congressional district, I feel like Brad often represents us in spirit by supporting many of the causes near and dear to Orange County's heart.

I think he's a very smart guy, and the fact that he wants to do an event like this speaks volumes about his values. You don't have to be a blogger and you don't have to give a contribution to come. Hope to see some of you there.

Please Join Congressman Brad Miller for a discussion hosted by Ruby Sinreich of and Brian Russell of about the impact of blogging on today's political environment.

When: Thursday, November 29, 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Where: Mill Town Restaurant, 307 E Main St, Carrboro

Suggested Donation: $10
Cash Bar

The women's basketball game is on TV and starts at 7 that night, so we may see if we can get Mill Town to flip to ESPN2...



I posted a yes on Facebook, hope to be there.

Ruby and Brian,

It's very unfortunate that the time of this get-together conflicts with the UNC Community meeting (5:30 -7:00 PM) regarding the University's plans for their Innovation Center at Carolina North. I know that you didn't create the time conflict but it will probably be a difficult choice for some.

I hope someone is planning on making a video and/or audio recording of this for those of us unable to attend... :)

The suggested donation goes toward what?

Catherine, it goes toward Brad's 2008 re-election campaign. Last year he was challenged by Vernon Robinson who spent a lot of time and money spreading his message of xenophobia and ignorance.

George, I just got the notice about the Innovation Center hearing this weekend and was very unhappy when I looked at my calendar! Someone will have to go and live-blog it for us. Also, anyone want to draft an OP post about it?
