Welcome to the 24th LD!

Re: Delegate Election. The election ended Sunday, May 3. After the state party tallied the results, our 24th LD Audit Committee reviewed them. 

We have a lot of other news too, and you can sign up for our newsletter here

Thank you to all the candidates who ran for delegate and to the PCOs who participated in the election. As Chair, I thank our Audit Committee: Vice Chair Julie Johnson, Secretary Jennie Peterson, Sanders rep Ruth Ross, Biden rep Jim Eddy. Thank you also the Accessibility Committee (Carla Woodward and Kristina Hestenes-Stimson). They all worked hard to assure that we have strong participation in an election of high integrity.  And we thank the staff of the Washington State Democrats for their work in developing and implementing the procedure on short notice. 

Biden delegates (16):
Joshua Bartman, Liz Bumgarner, Mike Cooper, Julie Johnson, Joe McGimpsey, Diane Jones, John Collins, Jessica Hernandez, Rod Fleck, Susan Uballe, LeRoy Martin, Beverly Hetrick-Ooosterveld, Dale Nachreiner, Arwen Rice, Rick Johnson, Christy Holy.

Biden alternates (8):

Marty Gilmore, Ellen Menshew, Becky Acevedo, Denise Mackenstadt, Robert Criswell, David Shiah, Lee Hoffman, Eva Bennett

Sanders delegates (14):
Thomas Kuykendall, Chelsea Provonost, Richard Robinson, Linda Brewster, Tyler Vega, Pamela Roberts, Kavic Rason, Kacie Starling, David Griffiths, Kristina Hestenes-Stimson, Josh Kraetsch, Gina Corsiglia, Michael Ferguson, Jolene Elkins.

Sanders alternates (7):

Stay Home/Stay Healthy: Our hearts go out to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hearts go out to those who are ill and those caring for them. Our hearts go out to those who are suffering economically and who cannot get the care they need. We are grateful for the empathy and professionalism of our front line healthcare workers and first responders as well as our health officers and elected officials who make such difficult decisions on our behalf. 

Our Democratic values can see us through. We have confidence in science and the capacity of government. We hope to see more action from DC as our advocates work on our behalf. We know that we need to address the health needs of us all as well as those in economic distress.

We also know that we must assure that we elect a Democratic POTUS in November and send Donald Trump packing. 

We are choosing our nominee. The March 10 Washington State Democratic Primary is certified, and the Washingtion State Democrats allocated delegates only to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, as they are the only ones to meet the 15% threshold in any Washington jurisdiction. As it happens, they are the only ones still contending.

Instead of mass meetings on May 3, Precinct Committee Officers from across the 24th LD elected state delegates to represent Jefferson, Clallam, and Grays Harbor counties and elect our national delegates at the 6thCongressional District level (on-line late May) and at the State Convention (still on the calendar for mid-June … so far).

These national delegates will participate in our National Convention (on the calendar in August … so far).
