Wednesday, March 19, 2014

 

Governor Lincoln Chafee will be attending the Democratic Governors Association lobbyist "DGA Ski Weekend" in Big Sky, Montana this weekend.

The event is open to DGA Founders' Circle and Chairman's Board members, and is limited to "two persons per company."

In 2010, the Founders' Circle membership was $250,000 and the Chairman's Board was $100,000, according to a graphic of DGA materials provided by the New York Times.

Statement from Governor's Office

Chafee Communications Director Faye Zuckerman provided the following statement today. 

"Governor Chafee will be attending the Democratic Governors Association’s 2014 weekend in Montana, March 21-23. During the meeting, there will be two roundtable discussions. One will focus on nutrition and the other is on energy. The nutrition meeting is expected to feature Billy Shore of Share Our Strength (https://www.nokidhungry.org). The scheduled speakers for the energy roundtable include Jim Ford, vice president of Federal and State Government Affairs for ConocoPhillips; Roger Nober, Executive Vice President, Law and Corporate Affairs, for Burlington Northern Santa Fe, LLC; and TBD from Cloud Peak Energy.
