Washington State Democrats will – for the first time- have a primary election instead of a caucus for Presidential candidates. The March 10, 2020 primary increases our relevance to the Democratic Party process for choosing our Presidential Candidate. I am looking forward to my opportunity to be involved. Please join me and other neighbors and friends in hosting a small gathering. 

Together we will build interest, knowledge and enthusiasm for taking actions that improve our democracy. Positive actions build positive energy. We need to continue developing our community commitment, organizational skills, volunteers, and our party. These are the building blocks of success in the next election.

In the meantime, remember that the Democratic Party is made up of volunteers like you and me. Many are working full-time or have serious commitments to family, community, etcetera. If you see something that needs improvement, please offer to help solve the issue. 

When I’m feeling overwhelmed with all of the negative news, I remind myself of these words from President Obama’s Jan. 10, 2017 Farewell Speech to the American people.
