With much apologies, I have to announce the cancellation of the King County Democrats Wine & Chocolate Soiree at this time. We will be rescheduling the event for a later date and will update everyone when that date will be in plenty of time to purchase tickets and put the date on their calendar.
We thank everyone who volunteered their time to help and everyone who purchased tickets so far. Your tickets will be refunded asap.
The agenda for our May 26 Executive Board meeting (7 PM, Renton Carpenters’ Hall) is here and includes:
Reminder: the LAC meets this Sunday, April 19, 2 to 4 p.m. at the Delridge Library, 5423 Delridge Way SW. We are looking forward to hearing from Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles (36th), especially about the compromise marijuana bill that passed, and from Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon (34th), Chair of House Environment and on the House Transportation Committee.
We’ll have a Bill Tracker update next week, reflecting cutoff for floor action for the two houses. What remains, of course, is agreement between the House and the Senate on the three budgets: the General Fund, the Capital (construction) Budget, and the transportation package. There is a good amount of agreement on the Capital Budget, with the Senate funding the Housing Trust Fund at $65 million and the House at $80 million. Please ask your legislators to go for $80 million for the Housing Trust Fund, to make up for $0 last year and only one earmarked project to King County the year before.
