Whatcom Democrats Monthly Membership Meeting

7pm - 9pm
Bellingham Central Library Lecture Room
210 Central Ave.
Wendy Czopp of Represent.US will describe the organization's Anti-Corruption Act, a "portable" ordinance/law that can be passed at the local or state level. She will also discuss local and state campaign possibilities. We will also from the workers at the Whatcom Counseling and Psychiatric Clinic about their struggle to maintain liveable wages and health benefits.
Super-candidate Joy Monjure is stepping up again - this time to run for a Supervisor position with the Whatcom Conservation District. Joy is concerned about the "natural resource challenges that threaten our health, culture, economy and quality of life". Joy has worked with the Conservation District in the past and says that it is a unique form of non-regulatory government that matches local resource needs with technical and financial resources to help landowners with “on-the-ground” conservation projects.
