    Remember, too, that when you join both the 23rd LD Democrats and the Kitsap County Democrats, you save $5.  The joint membership costs only $44 per year.  Please show your support for the Democratic Party in Kitsap County by joining both organizations.

    Your membership helped the 23rd LD Democrats elect responsive candidates to office in 2013.  The 23rd LD Democrats endorsed candidates in 9 races this fall.  We won 6 of those 9 races.  Of the contested races in which our endorsed candidate won, we won with an average of 65% of the vote.  That doesn't just happen by chance.  That kind of success comes from a strong, active and committed membership working for and voting for our endorsed candidates.   
    We have a lot more work to do in the next several years.  In 2014 we will be re-electing our two state house members--Representative Drew Hansen and Representative Sherry Appleton.  We will also be voting for Kitsap County Commissioner.  In 2015 we will have more local and municipal races to work on and work on the 2016 presidential race will begin.  Then the 2016 elections bring the presidential race and many statewide races.  Your membership helps us get ready to meet these challenges.   
    Please take a few minutes right now to renew your membership.  We look forward to counting you among our members in 2014.

    As the chair of the 23rd LD Democrats, it is my honor to serve the membership and Precinct Committee Officers to further the mission of our organization to elect good Democrats to office. This is not a job that is done alone, but rather is a team of dedicated volunteers that roll up their sleeves, dive in and get the job done.
