Vote Jean for County Council

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 2010-07-29 13:13

Jean Melious is running for County Council this year. Because of the whole jumble of Bob Kelly resigning and Ward Nelson being appointed to the seat through a shady backroom deal, there is a County Council race this year, and Jean’s running.

Jean Melious is the chair of the County planning commission, where she has worked hard to protect our quality of life here in Whatcom. Using her expertise as both a lawyer and a professor of environmental law at Western Washington University, she is ready to clean up the mess left by the current conservative county council.

Okay, it has been a little while since we have whacked the county council, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that they have been harmless. Once again, they are pushing to expand the Urban Growth Areas, turning our precious farmland into endless stretches of sprawl.

Each election cycle, Whatcom Democrats lay careful get-out-the-vote plans.  The outcomes  have been  remarkable.  We posted great results in the campaigns for President, Governor, and most legislative and Congressional seats.

Campaign Staff Lead State Democratic Effort

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 2010-07-05 11:24

Each congressional election year (even numbered) the Washington State Democrats put together a coordinated campaign to support the Democrats running for office in Washington. This effort mainly involves opening offices across the state (13 this year), hiring field organizers for each office, and coordinating the “generic” campaign work of voter registration, identifying Democratic voters, and getting out the vote, that helps all Democratic candidates get elected.

Volunteering in Office a Good Place to Start

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 2010-07-05 11:08

Hi this is Rebekah Lee, the office manager for the Whatcom Democrats. One of the most important parts of the your office is the small group of volunteers who fill a two hour weekly shift or are part of an on-call list to fill-in these shifts when one of the regulars is unable to be at the office.
