2020 Census Presentation

228 221 Carla Rogers

At our July meeting, Kamau Chege provided a presentation about the 2020 census that we encourage you to download and review. The 34th will be asked to support efforts in early 2020 to make sure everyone is counted.

The 2020 U.S. Census will lay the foundation upon which some important decisions are made in our region over the coming years. For example, it will determine how much funding is available for critical services like health care and where our legislative district lines lie. It’s critical we count all residents, including those who are traditionally underrepresented.

For more information, go to the Washington Census Alliance site.

Step Up and Be a PCO!

We Need You! The Party Needs You!

As we hunker down to make sure that democrats get elected this year and then again in 2020, we are also looking to fill open PCO positions in the district. What’s a PCO? A Precinct Committee Officer (or PCO) is the official elected or appointed Democratic Party official for an electoral precinct under state law. Their primary responsibility is to knock on their neighbors’ doors prior to each election to remind them to vote and provide materials on endorsed candidates, but they also serve as leaders and organizers for voters in their precinct.

Looking for a way to help this year and next? Learn more about becoming a PCO today! Our chair, Nick Bonazza will provide training and support. Check out the PCO section of our site and consider making a commitment to lead your precinct. Email Nick at pco@34dems.org for details.
