The Whatcom Democrats are low on funds. We poured our heart and soul (and all our funds) into last year’s successful county council campaigns without reserving enough for operating expenses. To keep our office open, we have to develop some new sources of revenue. We are currently brainstorming fundraising ideas and would welcome input from members.
Precinct Committee Officers are the neighborhood-level representatives of the party and the building blocks that we depend on to keep us visible and active in Whatcom County. PCOs are elected in even-numbered years, so all current PCOs and PCO candidates must file with the Auditor’s office for the November election. May 12 through 16 is filing week. Filing may be done online, through the Auditor’s website , by mail or in person at their office
Every ten years, Whatcom County elects a group of Commissioners to review the County Charter. This is one of those years. There are fifteen elected Commissioners, and we encourage any Whatcom Democrats to run. You can file to run during the week of May 12 to 16. Any Democrats interested in running should contact Mike Estes at email@example.com for more info.

April will see the final monthly paper edition of Grassroots. For several years the vast majority of our readership has been online. Printing and mailing costs have steadily increased. We have recently upgraded our email service to make the production of an electronic newsletter much easier and the result more attractive. We still plan to publish a paper newsletter on a quarterly basis.
