The agenda for our February 24 Executive Board meeting (7pm, Renton Carpenters’ Hall) will include the following items:
Please register now for the King County Democrats’ Legislative Action Day in Olympia, on Presidents Day, Monday, February 16, 2015, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM. (You can schedule appointments with Legislators in the afternoon from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM)
The Lobby Day Briefing will be held in Senate Hearing Room 3 of the John L Cherberg Building on the Capitol Campus, 304 15th Ave SW in Olympia. We will hear from experts on our key issues, discuss our lobbying strategy and enjoy a box lunch while we hear from our Legislators about what they are working on. From 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. you will make appointments with your legislators and ask for their support for our Legislative Agenda. At 5 p.m., many of us will be in Lacey for the WSDCC Crab Feed, a great event for Democrats and our electeds across the state.
Registration is $20 and includes a sack lunch. If this is not in your budget, you can register without lunch (bring your own) and still come to the event.
Steve Zemke and Sarajane Siegfriedt have been appointed as co-chairs of the Legislative Action Committee. Steve and Sarajane are two of our most experienced advocates, and have co-chaired this committee in the past. They are committed to greatly increasing opportunities for our PCOs and members to advocate for a better King County and Washington state during the legislative session.
Our annual King County Democrats Lobby Day in Olympia will be held this year on Presidents Day, Monday, February 16th, prior to the State Party’s Crab Feed, which starts at 5 PM.
We are also offering a list of 2015 Lobby Days events sponsored by kindred organizations, consistent with both our platform and our Legislative Agenda.
