Having 34 people in the Ski to Sea Parade happened because of the efforts of many people. We would like to thank all of the office staff and the PCOs that called Democrats in their precincts to ask people to join us in the parade. Every phone call was very important! We shared a booth with DFA (Democracy for America) at the Ski to Sea Festival on Sunday thanks to the generosity of Chuck Robinson of Village Books and Hue Beattie, who arranged it.
