Summer is upon us and we are just getting warmed up. The candidates have filed for all the positions and now the fun starts… getting good folks elected.
Well we’re at it again and our June 8th meeting promises to be just as exciting as May. Last month we had some great speakers and a Bothell City Council candidate’s forum, hosted by our Elections team. This was such a great event, that we decided to do it again.
As many of you know The Snohomish County Executives race, now has two Democrats in it, along with a few others. Our sitting Executive John Lovick and The County Council chair Dave Somers have both thrown their hats in the ring. We have invited them both to attend. We thought this would be a great opportunity to talk about the future of Snohomish County. Our Elections committee is putting together a set of questions for the candidates regarding what to expect for Snohomish County over the next four years and beyond. This is a great practice in democracy and we hope you will join us. There is still time for you to submit your ideas for questions, message them directly to Roger Burton over at our elections group.
Again dinner starts at 6:00 and our meeting starts at 7:00. We should have updates from our elected officials and candidates on their progress as well. The Forum should start at about 7:30.
Please invite your friends and family to this, this should be a big crowd, so if you have a little something for the potluck food table that will help as well, or throw a few bucks into the kitty.
Also there is still advertising opportunities on our website for only $25 a month, I think every candidates should invest with the 1st LD. Reach out to our communications chair Rennie Sawade and we’ll even help you produce the advertisement, and link to your site.
Some other great events coming up include; The Snohomish County Dinner and awards Fundraiser on June 13th in Edmonds, July 4th Parade in Downtown Bothell with Potluck to follow, MLT Friday night parade July 24th followed by Music and a Beer Garden and of course our Summer picnic August 22nd at Brightwater in Woodinville. Get them on your calendar and come join the fun.
See you there
Chair 1st LD Democratic Party.
