Our next speaker
Todd Myers is an environmental expert and a regular guest on TVW's show Inside Olympia. Todd has also appeared on NPR, BBC and CNN speaking about environmental issues. He is on the advisory board for Carbon Washington which is a revenue neutral carbon tax campaign. The campaign is currently gathering signatures for an initiative to legislature in 2016.

Greetings from the 1st LD Democratic Party;
We thank you for finding our web page and are inviting you to join us. We meet the second Monday of the month in Bothell and we think you might enjoy what we’re doing. We have put together a wonderful continuing education program for the rest of the year of topical speakers on issues that you have said are important to you. Our March speaker will be Alex Kory from Legal Voice. http://www.legalvoice.org/ This group addresses the issues that affect women via education and legislation. "Washington women need the freedom, privacy, and resources to make the healthcare decisions that are right for themselves and their families, and today, they just don’t have it. Conservative backlash to the Affordable Care Act and hundreds of anti-choice bills across the country have put women’s reproductive health under attack once again. Come learn about local responses including the Reproductive Health Act, what role the Hobby Lobby decision plays, and current legislative threats to women’s health and reproductive health.
Our meeting starts at 7:00 officially, but we’re serving a little dinner at 6:00, so you can come straight from work. (a small donation would be appreciated) The menu will have a St Paddy's' day theme to it with Corned beef sliders and potato leek soup...Yummy. As for our elected officials who are coming, so far we have King County Councilman Rod Dembowski and Snoco. Sheriff Ty Trenary coming to give us updates. So get on the phone and invite friends and family and have them join us for a wonderful night.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any question or just stop by.
“We can be the change we want to see.”
Chair of the 1st LD Democratic party.
