Chair's Message for August, 2016

August 1, 2016News Clip

This is an historic time for our country. After electing and re-electing an African-American President, the Democratic Party has nominated a woman to run for the White House. I celebrated last night with my daughter and thought often of my mother. She was no Hillary Clinton fan when she was alive. She was fully on board with Barack Obama in 2008. She passed away right before she received her ballot and was unable to vote for him.

Win the Legislature

July 29, 2016News Clip

It’s a BIG election year, with elections for President, US Senator, Governor, US Congress and many more. It is important that we Democrats win all of them.

It is my belief that control of the Washington State Legislature will have as much impact on our day to day lives as any of them. From funding education to providing incentives for clean energy, we need to control the Legislature. We have seen that nothing moves forward when the Republicans get into position to block, as they did two years ago.

Chair's Message for July, 2016

July 10, 2016News Clipby Chris Porter

The past 2 months have been an emotional rollercoaster for me and many others across the district and the country.  We just finished our presidential caucus and Senator Sanders won Washington State by a large margin.  As we continued our process of selecting delegates, our city council had a vote on vacating a street to facilitate building a new privately owned sports venue.  While some agreed with the decision to not grant the vacation, it was very disturbing and hurtful for the female council members, who all voted against it, to receive such hateful, vitriolic, and threatening emails.
