Holiday Meeting Schedule
by Mike Estes, Whatcom Democrats Chair
Now that the flutter of activity during campaign season has died down, we have a chance to spend more time with family and friends this holiday season. We are having a Holiday Party on Sunday, Dec 9th instead of a monthly membership meeting at Norway Hall in December.
Our membership meetings will resume on their normal schedule Thursday January 17th. This is a very important meeting where we will elect new officers for the next 2 years. Positions that are elected are Chair, 2 Vice-Chairs, Secretary, Treasurer, State Committeeman and State Committee-woman. Per Washington State law, only PCOs elected in the August 2012 Primary Election are eligible to vote for officer positions.
In January, we will also consider some bylaws changes and preview a draft 2013 budget. There are 2 potential special elections to make endorsements in: the creation of a Fairhaven Forest Park District, and a possible rerun of a measure to expand the number of Port Commissioners to 5. Each of these decisions can be voted on by any member of the Whatcom Democrats. Hope to see you all in the New Year!
