“We are looking forward to a new and unique focus with this dinner,” explained Brett Barker, Story County GOP Chairman. “Wendy was an incredible lady and we will be honoring her legacy by discussing how we can bring civility back to our discourse in this toxic political climate.”

The dinner is an annual tradition in memory of Wendy Jensen. Wendy selflessly dedicated countless hours volunteering for Republican causes from 2008-2011.
