Blue Jeans in High Places“Today’s commoners share an understanding that the biggest problem facing America in our time is a political system that caters to a few at the expense of the many.” – from chapter 8 of Mike McCabe’s book. Amazon says “Blue Jeans in High Places is both a hunt for lost political treasure and a how-to guide for nursing American democracy back to health. The book details how our political culture has become diseased while at the same time dispelling the cynical view that politics has always been like it is today and always will be. And it prescribes a groundbreaking cure.”

Mike McCabe’s resume includes a farming background and a professional lifetime of experience in politics, journalism, public sector management and nonprofit leadership. He served as executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, a non-partisan watchdog group that has gained the attention of major networks, newspapers, and magazines. He is a much sought-after public speaker to a wide range of audiences including League of Women Voters, Praire du Chien Rotary Club, Kenosha County Democratic Party, RockNetroots Evansville Forum, 7th annual Wisconsin Grassroots Festival (and that’s just since late January)

Copies of “Blue Jeans in High Places” will be available for sale before and following dinner.
