It’s Up to Us.

Changes: We are, at this time, without a permanent chair. Linda Medeiros Callahan has made the difficult choice to submit her resignation, for personal and family health reasons.  We wish her well. The Executive Board will formally accept her resignation at its next meeting, slated for February 6th. A meeting of PCOs will then be called, per our bylaws, for election of a Chair.

 

Keeping Up with Legislation

Our first Legislators Round Table will be Sunday, March 12th at the Bay Club in Port Ludlow. Assistant Majority Whip Mike Chapman will be our guest. Mike has signed on as a co-sponsor of HB-1026, single-payer healthcare in Washington State. Click here to find links for reading the bill, commenting and tracking progress.
