Jefferson County Democrats is an approximately 700-member strong political organization dedicated to implementing Democratic Party platforms through candidates and legislation. We’re a living organization, with platforms and policies that are shaped by members. Our membership meets once a month, typically early in the last week of the month. In between, members are volunteering and working independently or in committees to accomplish our goals. If you haven’t already, we hope you will join us!
Our August membership meeting has been cancelled. A majority of Executive Board members voted to cancel the August membership meeting, and so our next scheduled membership meeting will be Tuesday, September 19th.
Our June 20th meeting included a presentation by Physicians for Social Responsibility during the program portion, election of a board member, and discussion and voting on several resolutions during our business portion of the meeting.

Call for Volunteers: We’re about to begin canvassing! Click here to sign up for canvassing. In addition, we are seeking volunteers for this year’s Fish Feast, which is happening August 27th at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. Membership and Communications have several goals that will be easier to accomplish with many hands. Please e-mail email@example.com to express your interest in volunteering.
Election of a Chair: Congratulations to Marty Gilmore, our newly elected chair for 2017-2018!
Marty’s a great sport, and we have to have some lighthearted moments even in dark times. So here he’s pictured “spokesmodeling” WA Dems Resistance hat and scarf, alongside Ryan Mc Allister and Tina Podlodowski.
Keeping Up with Legislation
Our first Legislators Round Table was held Sunday, March 12th at the Bay Club in Port Ludlow, with approximately 75 members attending. Assistant Majority Whip Mike Chapman and Representative Steve Tharinger were our guests, in an open question format without moderation or screening of questions.
