He has put the goober in gubernatorial.

Jim Hightower on Texas Governor Rick Perry

Jim Hightower

Enjoy the wit and wisdom of former Texas Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower at PLAN-Boulder County’s Annual Dinner on June 3.  The Annual Dinner is a long-standing Boulder tradition where folks who care about the future of our beautiful city gather to celebrate, be entertained, reconnect with old friends, and honor PBC award winners.

Jim Hightower is a New York Times best-selling author and has written several books including, Thieves In High Places: They’ve Stolen Our Country And It’s Time To Take It Back; If the Gods Had Meant Us To Vote They Would Have Given Us Candidates; There’s Nothing In the Middle Of the Road But Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos; and Swim Against the Current, Even a Dead Fish Can Go with the Flow. His newspaper column is distributed nationally by Creators Syndicate.  He has spent three decades battling the Powers That Be on behalf of the Powers That Ought To Be – consumers, working families, environmentalists, small businesses, and just-plain-folks.

The dinner is open to both PBC members and the public, with discounts available to members.  An early bird member discount  expires on May 12.  Visit the PLAN-Boulder website for details.

It should be a hoot!
