“We are thrilled to have Nevada’s leading political reporter share his insights into the current Legislative session and beyond,” said Chip Evans, WashoeDEMS chair. “He will give attendees an opportunity to find out what’s really going on in Carson City.”

For 15 years, Ralston was the political reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and currently reports in the Las Vegas Sun and Reno Gazette-Journal. As host of “Face to Face,” he interviews community leaders, officeholders and residents on Nevada issues. An avid tweeter, Ralston is also a frequent commentator on MSNBC and publisher of RalstonFlash.com, a daily e-mail newsletter.

“Attendees will also have an opportunity to share progressive values with other guests and Nevada officeholders,” said Shaun Gray, WashoeDEMS executive director. “It will be a star-studded event.”

Sparks City Council member Julia Ratti, in her role as master of ceremonies, will introduce Ralston. A Sparks native, she has spent much of her professional career working on economic and community development endeavors.

The WashoeDEMS brunch proceeds will contribute to their success in field organization, voter registration, legislative support and candidate identification.
