We’re on the cusp of the Iowa caucuses and the March 26th 2016 Washington State Democratic Precinct Caucuses are less than 60 days away. Want to run for 2016 presidential delegate? Make the best impression at the Precinct Caucuses by being appointed as a PCO at our February 10th meeting.
At our January 13th meeting we endorsed a YES vote for the Seattle Schools Levy (vote for it by mail before February 9) and a panel on homelessness including Mercedes Elizalde former City Council District 5 candidate, Hanna Brooks Olsen, who works for Civic Ventures and is a co-founding editor of the online publication and Michael Maddux former City Council District 4 ;candidate. The meeting also featured State Senator Cyrus Habib, candidate for Lt. Governor, Tina Podlodowski, candidate for Secretary of State, and our new Seattle City Council member Lisa Herbold.
I truly believe that we are watching the demise of the republican party (cue violins). Although stomach-turning to witness this pitiable parade of pariahs, they may force the republican party to run its own third-party candidate just to get their “establishment” candidate on the ballot. Now, that’s a beautiful thing. Truly, they would be getting what they deserve after generations of divisive cultural politics. That party has been focused on the past and as a result has lost the future.
Get ready for the 2016 legislative session! It will start January 11, 2016. The King County Democrat’s Legislative Action Committee (LAC) and the 34th District’s LAC will be planning a trip to Olympia to visit with our legislators and discuss this year’s agenda of area’s that matter most to us.
