It has been an exciting week here in Pierce County! Democratic party endorsed candidates did very well in the election held November 3rd. We won a majority of the seats on the Pierce County Charter Review Commission, turned the tide at the Puyallup City Council with three out of four wins, and many of our friends and allies won seats on school boards and city councils around the county. History was made again in Tacoma, when Keith Blocker won the District #3 City Council seat; the first time an African American man has been elected to the Council since Harold Moss was elected in 1971 (after being appointed in 1970)!
This week is our Executive Board meeting but everyone is welcome. We will be hosting the declared Democratic candidates for Lieutenant Governor: Senators Karen Fraser (D-22) and Cyrus Habib (D-48). Representative Jim Moeller (D-49) is unable to attend and may send a representative in his place. Here's your chance to start getting to know these fine candidates! Please join us at the IBEW Local 76 Hall, this Thursday, November 12th at 7 pm for an informative meeting.
We are busy planning the Caucuses for next spring. Stay tuned for more information from your legislative district chairs. We have updated the calendar to reflect all LD meetings and include their websites for your convenience. Our website and calendar are always a work in progress through the efforts of several volunteers. If you know of an event that might be interesting to your fellow Democrats, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to add it.
And please join us this Saturday, November 14th at the ILWU Local 23 Hall in Fife to watch the 2nd Democratic Presidential Debate. Pizza, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be served for FREE! This is courtesy of the ILWU Local 23, IAFF Local 31, Representative Adam Smith, Citizen for Rick Talbert. Come visit with your fellow Democrats and cheer on the candidates.
Stay tuned for information about our Holiday Party to be held on December 10th. Location TBA!
