In preparation for the coming campaign season, Natalie McClendon has appointed (and the Executive Board has confirmed) two new committee chairs. Elisabeth Britt will be heading up the Campaign Committee, which as you can imagine, handles our campaign activities every election cycle. You might remember her from her tireless work managing the Whatcom Democrats efforts on the Transit Works campaign. She also manages the popular blog on local politics, Latte Republic.
