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.
Again this year we will have a booth at the NW WA Fair in Lynden, August 16-21. We have a great location, just opposite Gate 1 on Front Street. Come by and see us!
Volunteers are needed to staff the booth and be ambassadors for the Democratic Party. Please call the office at 647-7661 to sign up.
Volunteers receive a pass into the fair on the day they work. Shifts of 4 hours in length start at 10 am, 2 pm, and 6 pm.

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.
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.
Initiative campaigns for the two ballot measures endorsed by the Whatcom Democrats – 1068 and 1098 – are now complete. All petitions were due in the Secretary of State’s office by July 2.
Yes on 1098 campaign turned in 360,000 signatures on July 1st, having needed 241,000 legal ones to qualify. I-1098 is the middle-class tax cut and revenue package supported by Bill Gates, Sr.
The Whatcom Dems sent down a solid handful of delegates to the Washington State Democratic Convention. Democratic party leaders, candidates, citizen activists and just good interested people gathered to organize and get fired up.
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.

The State Convention in Vancouver was great . I would say the best in 20 years. It is the time to talk with elected Democrats from all over – here's what I did:
