Hartford Visit Not In Plans For Palin

Sarah Palin won't be coming to Hartford after all.

The former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor had been announced as the headline speaker for a business-oriented seminar Sept. 22.

But the Palin camp says the Hartford stop isn't on her schedule.

Gary Troy, organizer of the event, says it's all a miscommunication and that the show will go on without the high-profile politician, author and Tea Party favorite. Her photo has been removed from the promoter's website.

Scheduled speakers include sales and personal effectiveness guru Brian Tracy; motivational speaker Les Brown; and memory expert Ron White. Organizers still haven't announced a Hartford venue for the event.

The Hartford Business Journal, which had initially signed on as a media partner, has severed its ties with the event. Publisher Gail Lebert said confusion and uncertainty over the program led to the decision.

Last September, a similarly promoted event — Get Motivated! — drew thousands to the XL Center to hear Laura Bush, Rudy Giuliani, Colin Powell and Joe Montana.
