Thanks to Volunteers and Candidates
by Daydre Phillips, Outreach Committee Chair
I would like to thank all of the volunteers and candidates who participated in the Outreach Committee’s activities during the last few months of the election. It took every single person working together to make this election the success that it was. If I have forgotten anyone, I do apologize, and want everyone who participated to know how much your efforts are appreciated.

Sandhu, Linda Schonborn, Steve Schuck, Bob Seaman, Theodora Sideras, Satpal Sidhu, Stowe Talbot, Andrew Taylor, Charlie Ward, and Alyce and George Werkema.

Vernell Lane, Native Votes Coordinator of the Lummi Nation, made an excellent and tireless effort to get out the vote. We greatly appreciate her hard work.
Gwen Groden, the Whatcom Democrats Program Coordinator, with her cheerful, consistent support for all of the Outreach activities was a great help in making all of our efforts successful.
I would especially like to thank Mike Estes, Whatcom Democrats Chair, for his quiet supportive leadership. Although it was a busy time for him, taking over his chair in the middle of a campaign season, he made the effort to attend every one of our events. He was one of the most active members of the committee.
