Congratulations to Remo Barr
The 23rd LD Democrats were well represented in Olympia at Monday's (May 4th) "People's Hearing" sponsored by Washington United for Fair Revenue. Representative Ross Hunter chaired the event. Each of the 49 Legislative Districts was given 60 seconds for one spokesperson to bring attention to the need for fair revenue and critical budget priorities. Leslie Daugs spoke for the 23rd Legislative District. Michael Woods and Dante Miguel (member of our 23rd LD Democrats E-Board) were in attendance, too.

Thank you to Karen Klein and John van den Meerendonk for a great afternoon at Bloedel Reserve. This was a 23rd LD Dinner Auction item that was well worth the donation! Karen served a fantastic brunch and John is a superior guide who knows so much about the history of Bloedel Reserve. We're lucky to have a couple like this as part of the 23rd LD Democrats!
Thanks again, Karen and John!!

Kilmer Statement on House Budget
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Derek Kilmer (D-WA) released the following statement after voting against the House Republican budget proposal.
“A budget is a reflection of our values. It’s not simply numbers on a spreadsheet. Our nation’s budget shows what we care about; and what as a nation we aspire to be. The budget the House passed today fails to live up to our values and aspirations. It fails to make the kinds of investments in infrastructure and economic growth that will create new jobs, it unfairly squeezes dedicated federal workers who make a meaningful impact on our region every single day, and it will hurt our efforts to protect the Puget Sound and our region’s natural resources. I will continue to call on Democrats and Republicans to come together on a smart budget that supports middle-class families and moves our country forward.”
