HELP!

Submitted by John Flancher on Thu, 2014-05-15 15:13

The Whatcom Democrats are low on funds.  We poured our heart and soul (and all our funds) into last year’s successful county council campaigns without reserving enough for operating expenses.  To keep our office open, we have to develop some new sources of revenue.  We are currently brainstorming fundraising ideas and would welcome input from members.  

PCO Elections

Submitted by John Flancher on Thu, 2014-05-15 15:12

Precinct Committee Officers are the neighborhood-level representatives of the party and the building blocks that we depend on to keep us visible and active in Whatcom County.  PCOs are elected in even-numbered years, so all current PCOs and PCO candidates must file with the Auditor’s office for the November election.  May 12 through 16 is filing week.  Filing may be done online, through the Auditor’s website , by mail or in person at their office

Charter Review Commission Election

Submitted by John Flancher on Thu, 2014-05-15 15:11

Every ten years, Whatcom County elects a group of Commissioners to review the County Charter.  This is one of those years.  There are fifteen elected Commissioners, and we encourage any Whatcom Democrats to run. You can file to run during the week of May 12 to 16.  Any Democrats interested in running should contact Mike Estes at demchair@whatcomdemocrats.com for more info.
