Canvassing during Covid

150 150

Canvassing - we need to remind Democrats to vote in August and November elections!

To do that, we need to identify Democrats. We can't knock on doors, so our State Committee Representative Diane Jones is organizing phone banks throughout our LD. She can set you up with a call list. Give Diane a call at 360-379-9193.

Jefferson County Democrats vote online to endorse eight candidates for state offices

150 150

For the first time – but probably not for the last time – the Jefferson County Democrats met virtually May 20, 2020 through the wonders of technology to endorse eight candidates for state elected positions.

Using the “chat” function in the Zoom computer app, 40 party members voted from their homes to endorse incumbents Gov. Jay Inslee; Attorney General Bob Ferguson; Hilary Franz, commissioner of public lands; 24th District Sen. Kevin Van de Wege; and 24th District Reps. Steve Tharinger and Mike Chapman. They also endorsed Mike Pellicciotti for state treasurer and Gael Tarleton for secretary of state.

In addition, party members voted to support new state law SB 5395, which requires school districts to provide recurring instruction in human development and reproduction that is age-appropriate and inclusive of all students. And they voted to oppose signing petitions for referendums 90 and 91, which would repeal SB 5395.
