The Rules Committee will focus on considering various operational aspects of the Code of Conduct and will work with State Party staff on training opportunities for local party organizations.
Please note that under the Code of Conduct, it not appropriate to have alcohol at business meetings of the State Central Committee, the State Party’s Executive Board, any county or legislative district organizations, or affiliated organizations. Alcohol at appropriate venues where ID is properly checked (such as dinner banquets or fundraisers) continues to be appropriate.
Dear 7th Legislative District of WA State and USA Residents,
I am honored to introduce our Okanogan County Democratic Central Committee Chairwoman, Susan Swanson! She is one of the hardest working women I know and I am honored to not only serve with her in our county, but to have grown to know her as a dear friend and generous human spirit.
Susan is stepping up for all women, the families, children, seniors of ourgreat state, the #TheNewBlue and all the neighbors in our great state to run for WA House State Representative for the 7th Legislative District. I honestly can’t think of a better person to turn an old red seat into a seat for #TheNewBlue for WA State!
Since 1974, Susan started out her career in the United States Navy, serving for four years in active duty during the Vietnam era. After her Honorable Discharge, she spent 27 years as aFederal Civil Service Employee and Navy spouse. Her civil service career began with the Department of Navy and brought her full circle to what is nearest and dearest to her; working with the Department of Defense Education Activity(DoDEA), educating children of military, civilian and contractor members who were stationed overseas. Her service to children, families and community continues through today, with her dedication to fighting for better opportunities to access quality education, affordable family wellbeing and solutions to many community challenges or issues.
Being a Democrat is more of a way of life for Susan. She’s a staunch supporter of Democratic ideals and evolving national platform of #TheNewBlue. No stranger to hard work, she participates in both the 7th and 12th Legislative Districts, plus State Democratic meetings. She has been a remarkable leader, serving as Chairwoman of the OCDCC for the Okanogan County Democratic Party, and we are thrilled she is taking this next step to run as House State Representative for the 7thLD.
I’m asking each of you to please join me in supporting her efforts and to make sure she succeeds in securing this seat for #TheNewBlue. Every dollar donated, whatever you can afford – whether as a monthly recurring or single donation, is greatly appreciated and will help Susan cover her campaign costs. Such costs can include those for meetings, trainings, rallies, promotional materials, website, communications, travel and other campaign related items that will be incurred from now through the election in 2018. Making sure Susan has the necessary funding for her campaign, will give her the best shot at winning. So, thank you for whatever your donation is today!
Please share her donation link with family, friends and neighbors – because yours and everyone else’s donations will help Susan in turning that old red seat into #TheNewBlue seat that we all need in 2018!
Be sure to follow her on Facebook too!
Thank you for your consideration and support.
