The Greene County Democrats will host self-help author and presidential hopeful Marianne Williamson at a meet-and-greet event Saturday, March 2 at 2 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson Gardens and Welcome Center, 201 E. Lincolnway in Jefferson.
The event is free and open to the public.
Williamson has sold more than 3 million books worldwide, with millions of people attending her lectures over a 35-year career focused on spiritual enlightenment and wellbeing.
The Williamson presidential campaign currently has paid staff in nine states, with Brent Roske, former host of the Emmy-nominated TV series “Roske on Politics,” running the Iowa campaign.
“My campaign for the presidency is dedicated to the search for higher wisdom,” Williamson’s website says. “Its purpose is to create a new political possibility in America — where citizens awaken, our hearts and minds are uplifted and our democracy once more becomes a thing about which we can all feel proud.”
Williamson’s issue statements are available online on the campaign website.
The Des Moines Register said Williamson has “undeniable appeal to those who are troubled by signs of moral bankruptcy and lack of human compassion in the current administration.” For more information, visit the Greene County Democrats Facebook page.
