The Washington State Democrats held their state meeting over the weekend at the Marcus Whitman Hotel in Walla Walla. A great turnout by Democrats from around the state as there was a lot of fun, laughter and learning. The 16th LD put forward a resolution to create a Climate Caucus within the party, and it was approved with overwhelming support. Below, Chairman Rick Evans welcomes the crowd to Walla Walla at the start of the general meeting. Remember the 16th LD’s next meeting is May 18th at the Crazy Moose Casino in Pasco!
In today’s Walla Walla Union-Bulliten, I wrote an article highlighting two pieces of legislation that need your support. HB 1570 and HB 1633 directly help the homeless throughout Washington State. You can find the article here.
Reach out to your representatives in Olympia, Terry Nealey at (360) firstname.lastname@example.org and Bill Jenkin at (360) email@example.com and ask them to support these two important pieces of legislation.
The 16th Legislative District Democratic Party named its slate of officers in a biannual reorganization meeting held Monday in Pasco. Chairman Rick Evans of Walla Walla was reelected to his leadership role. Joining him will be two new vice chairs, Jess Portas and Dillon Benitez.
Rounding out the leadership are State Committeeman Everett Maroon, State Committeewoman Ashley Dailey and Treasurer Helen Hansens.
“The goal for the organization is to continue to grow and find more ways to serve the people of our district by increasing awareness of local issues and making sure our current representatives in Olympia are being held accountable for their votes while in the legislature” Evans said in an email announcing the reorganization.
