26th LD Democrats December 2014 News And Information

Carl Olson presents a Volunteer Of The Year award to George Robison.

4 December 2014


The Reorganization Meeting started with us being locked out of the Givens Center.  With the good offices of several Democrats elected to positions in Kitsap County, we moved the meeting to the Kitsap County Administration Building.

Fourteen elected PCOs were present tonight.  I want to thank them for electing me Chair and for having the patience to stay around and do all the business that was done.  Nine new applications for PCO were received and approved to be forwarded to the respective county central committee for approval.  Thank you for volunteering to take on the job. 

Membership is now officially open for everyone living in the 26th LD who is willing to stand up and say through the payment of dues, “I am a Democrat”. 

Attached is a list of committees to be formed.  Please volunteer for at least one committee.  There is something that everyone can do and in the coming two years we need everyone working together.  Larry Seaquist will chair the committee to set up an annual fundraiser.  Don Bartley will chair the Veterans Activities Committee.  River Curtis-Stanley will chair the Platform Committee.  Lynda Filson will either chair or co-chair the Community Involvement Committee.
January 1st is a Thursday and not practical for our meeting.  I will probably not be at this meeting due to a commitment made long ago to be elsewhere. Our January meeting will be on January 8th at 7 p.m. at the Givens Community Center (Kitsap Room), 1026 Sidney Road, Port Orchard 98366.  For the remainder of the year meetings will return to the first Thursday of each month.
