Welcome to Jefferson County Democrats!

We are dedicated to implementing Democratic Party platforms through candidates and legislation. We are 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. You can review meeting minutes here. 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 today!

A message from Marty Gilmore and James Thomson

The JCD Finance Committee has performed a review of JCD accounts for 2017. The accounts are in order. Minor and unintentional reporting errors were identified and have been corrected. Procedures and documentation have been improved for 2018 in order to avoid similar minor reporting errors this year.

Endorsement Meeting Results

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.

Rep. Mike Chapman speaks to JCD members.

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.
