All Democrats Welcome
PROGRAM: Our endorsed County Council Candidates will discuss the various land use planning proposals, including Urban Growth Area proposed changes, LAMIRD proposals, Critical Areas Ordinance. Both the LAMIRD and UGA issues involve big money. Given that it is election season, land speculator and developer money should once again be expected to play a role in County politics. See the following article for background.
Democratic-supported candidates have been quite successful in recent years in getting elected, and a majority on our County Council, in particular, have been able to make great progress in protecting farm land and water quality in our county. But this is not the time to be complacent about our local elected representatives.
With about 100 members in attendance at it's August meeting, Whatcom County Democrats considered further endorsements for this November's election. Whatcom Democrats rules require a 2/3 majority for endorsement.
