HELENA – U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will speak at a July 26 brunch in Missoula on behalf of the group Western Progress.

Pelosi is a California Democrat and the first woman elected U.S. House speaker.

Former Montana Congressman Pat Williams says Pelosi will be in Montana to attend a wedding and wanted to help Western Progress, a nonpartisan, eight-state group that advocates “progressive solutions in the Rocky Mountain states.”

The group has offices in Phoenix, Denver and Missoula.

The brunch will be at the Hilton Garden Inn. Tickets are $15 apiece and reservations can be made by calling (406) 829-6603.
