Can You Help?

When the convention for the Wisconsin Democratic Party comes to town Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6, a lot of delegates will be staying at the convention site (the Potawatomi Hotel) and other nearby venues. But the rooms can be very expensive, and may be in short supply. And that's where you come in.

We're looking for people who are willing to provide housing for out-of-town delegates, usually just for a night or two but possibly as many as three. If you have a guest room, or even a couch or floor that could accommodate some of the younger and spryer folks who might be coming, just fill in a form on our Host a Delegate page. In early May and then on May 16, I will send information about accommodations to the chairs of the county parties (none of the info you provide will be published or accessible to anyone else). The chairs and/or their designees will help match up delegates needing lodging with people who have signed up to host.

It's really a simple way to make sure everyone who wants to participate in party governance can do so without huge expense. And it's also a way for Milwaukee area progressives to meet some of their peers from other parts of the state. A true win-win.

So, Host a Delegate.
