Our next meeting is June 8th, 10am at the Machinists Hall in Ferndale. We will be discussing messaging, candidates and campaigns; fairs, festivals and upcoming events. I hope you all make it.
We need to plan our June 15th meeting with congresswoman Suzan Delbene. This is a great opportunity for us to talk to our representative and get her statements on the issues that matter to us, such as TPP and Chained CPI. Come out and help build the 42nd Democratic Committee!
Late last week we were informed that the congresswoman needs to stay in DC next weekend. We will NOT be having a meet and greet for her. We will NOT have a chance to discuss issues that matter to us here in the 42nd LD of Washington State.
We had a great meeting with Rud Browne, Carl Weimer and Ken Mann who are all running for county council seats. We also heard from Jeremy with I-522 Campaign to label foods that are or contain genetically modified organisms, GMO. Filing week is coming up next week and then we will be off and running for county council, city council and other races for this year’s elections! Look for more information here and a whole page dedicated to elections.
On April 13th the 42nd LD approved a resolution in opposition to the chained CPI that is being considered for use in determining Social Security and Veterans benefits. You can read the resolution here: Resolution Against the Use of the Chained CPI for Calculation Cost of Living Increases for Social Security
Our monthly meetings are the second Saturday of each month, unless otherwise indicated. We meet at 10am, the Machinists Hall located at 2064 Vista Drive in Ferndale. If you have questions or need information, please email us at email@example.com.
Our own 42nd LD Democratic PCO Riley Sweeney shares his observations of our representatives in Olympia (and much more) at his own blog, The Political Junkie.
