Jefferson County Democrats is 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. 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!
Next Membership Meeting: Wednesday, November 29th at 6:00pm
Location: Chimacum High School Auditorium, 91 W Valley Rd, Chimacum, WA 98325
This meeting will represent 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 that were read to the membership at our October meeting will be 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.

We welcomed Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson as our keynote speaker. Bob’s work fighting the current administration’s travel ban put him front and center as a hero for humane immigration policies and fair treatment under the law.
Also attending were Congressman Derek Kilmer, State Senator Kevin Van de Wege, State Representatives Steve Tharinger and Mike Chapman, Washington State Democrats Chair Tina Podlodowski, and many of our local elected representatives.
Delicious food was served: salmon from Key City Fish barbecued by Larry Dennison, shellfish courtesy of Taylor Shellfish, PT Brewing Co’s best beers, Pane d’Amore rolls, Greens & Veggies from local farms, Wine from the Wine Cellar, and scrumptious cake!
Thank you to all volunteers!

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.
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.
