Jefferson County Democrats members overwhelmingly endorsed incumbent State Representatives Steve Tharinger and Mike Chapman for re-election in 2018. With about 25% of our members in attendance, the November 29 membership meeting voted in favor of the motion to endorse, as each candidate received more than 90% of the endorsement votes. We join the Clallam County Democrats, Gray’s Harbor County Democrats, and the 24th LD Democrats in endorsing the re-election of our 24th Legislative District representatives.
This meeting represented both our November and December membership meetings, so that no formal membership meeting will be scheduled during the month of December.
*Resolutions to be read before the membership. Several resolutions were voted on at our November 29th meeting. At least one new resolution will be read before the membership. Click here to visit our Resolutions page and view results.
