[caption id="attachment_4621" align="alignright" width="300"] January 26th Membership Meeting[/caption] While we were saddened to learn of the resignation of our chair, we would be more disappointed if that were the story that overshadowed the real story... because it's an incredibly positive one. People in Jefferson County are taking action and willing to make JC Dems the vessel for their voices. Imagine our surprise, delight and gratitude at the sheer volume of members in attendance, including many who just joined or rejoined, ready for action. As we scrambled to change to a large venue, members old and new alike pitched in and helped move and set up. We can't thank Chimacum School District Superintendent, Rick Thompson, enough for his emergency hospitality. It is a sign of a healthy body and community that we moved forward so well under exceptional circumstances. We're going to make changes as a result of people speaking up last night: bigger venues and rearrangement of agenda items to more quickly facilitate empowering grassroots action. We have greatly appreciated all of the emails and phone calls of support after the meeting, the patience of everyone who attended last night. And be assured ... our eyes as a party are focused resolutely in one direction. Forward. We look forward to seeing everyone back next month and getting to work.
