The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson to speak at Suncoast Tiger Bay event in late January

Posted By on Sun, Dec 30, 2012 at 7:37 AM

If you're a regular MSNBC viewer, you're used to seeing Eugene Robinson weighing in on the affairs of Washington D.C almost as much as network regulars Chris Matthews or Chuck Todd.

Now Tampa Bay area political junkies will have the opportunity to see and hear from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist in the flesh next month, when he appears as the keynote speaker for the Suncoast Tiger Bay Club’s Annual Dinner on Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, at the St. Petersburg Marriott Clearwater.

Unlike the usual meetings for this Pinellas County political salon, this event is in prime time, and includes a cocktail hour before festivities commence.

In addition to Eugene Robinson, the Suncoast Tiger Bay Club will also be honoring former state Senator Dennis Jones with its Benjamin Franklin Award, and longtime Tampa Bay Times investigative reporter Lucy Morgan will be given the Thomas Paine Award for what Tiger Bay officials describe as her "extraordinary integrity, courage and achievement."
