Fellow Democrats,

Good morning. It is Filing Week! This includes filing to run for precinct committee officer. To do that, you can file online via the Secretary of State’s Office or fill out this form and email it to elections@franklincountywa.gov.

I will write an email Saturday with a roundup of who filed where.

Doug White signs — we got’em

Doug White’s campaign has delivered signs to Benton and Franklin counties. With Benton County Chair Richard Reuther’s help, Franklin’s share is now at my house.

I’d like to give one out to whoever wants one. The suggested donation is $15, which you can pay by going to this link! Then just let me know. I’ll also be putting signs up across Pasco this weekend, and any hands that wish to help would be greatly appreciated.

A brief acting chair update

So far, no other candidates have turned out for chair. Everyone contacted so far has politely declined.

If we reach the June 16 meeting and no one steps forward to run for chair, calls for further meetings will be in the hands of the PCOs. They can to organize with the state party’s assistance or as a unit.

Any monthly bills we have also will be put on hold until the central committee reconstitutes itself. That means the PCOs elect a permanent chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer.

Natasha Hill seeking our endorsement

Natasha Hill, a prominent Democrat in the 5th Congressional District, is seeking the Franklin County Democrats’ endorsement.

You can read more here about Natasha’s upbringing and experience.

Why is a 5th CD candidate seeking our endorsement? Because only Pasco remains in the 4th CD. Redistricting put north Franklin County into the 5th’s hands.

Natasha is able to be with us at our June 16 meeting, but I wanted everyone to know now (reminders will follow, don’t worry).

In service to democracy and the Union.
