“Want Our Votes? Know Our Neighborhood: South Park Shows Up”

Wednesday, 5/27/2015 from 7-9pm
South Park Neighborhood Center @ 8201 10th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108

https://www.facebook.com/events/826194567434460/

This year, voting for Seattle City Council positions will be by district, a result of a measure Seattle voters passed in 2013. In the upcoming primary and general elections, voters will elect seven out of nine councilmembers by district. The remaining two positions (8 and 9) will be elected “at large” (citywide).

South Park residents live in District 1–along with West Seattle and Delridge residents. Candidates have been campaigning to the larger neighborhoods in the district. We want to bring them to South Park!

They want our votes? They need to know our neighborhood!

We’re providing food, a space to entertain your kids while you participate, and an entertaining (yet informative) format.

Here are the goals for this event:

*****Engage the community of South Park in the political process, including residents who speak English as a second language–translation provided!
*****Teach the candidates about the unique qualities of South Park (i.e…one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the city, more children per capita than any other Seattle neighborhood)
*****Bring favorable media attention to South Park–and remind the rest of the city how awesome it is!
******Provide an easy & convenient way to get voters in South Park registered for the upcoming election
******Give time for candidates to share their positions on South Park issues

KCDCC & 11th LD Reorganization Meetings

Dear Precinct Committee Officer:

Congratulations on your election as a Democratic Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) for the 2015-2016 term and thank you for signing on to the most important position in the Democratic Party. Two of your first opportunities will be to elect the leadership of the King County Democratic Central Committee (KCDCC) and of your own Legislative District organization.

The King County re-organization meeting will be on:

Saturday, December 6, 2014

King County Democratic Central Committee Reorganization
8:30 am registration — 9:00 am call to order
Aerospace Machinists Union Hall
9125 15th Place S, Seattle, WA

Please help us by pre-registering for this online.

Your district, the 11th Legislative District will be having its reorganization meeting on:

Tuesday, January 20, 2015
7:00 PM call to order

Renton Carpenters Hall
231 Burnett Avenue North, Renton, WA

The proposed agenda and rules for the KCDCC reorganization are posted on our website, as are the proposed agenda and rules for the individual LD reorganization meetings.

Each of the District meetings will be convened by either the new King County Chair or his/her designated appointee, who will preside until the election of your next District chair, provide for the sign-in of your district’s PCOs, and make any necessary customizations to your meeting agenda (since not every District has the same set of officers to elect).

Re-organizations are a great opportunity to meet and greet other PCOs, Party members and leaders, and our elected officials. Aside from the usual cascade of local elections, the upcoming term will see elections for all of our state-wide offices and an open US Presidential caucus. We will need to hit the ground running.

Let’s Build, Let’s Grow, Let’s WIN
Yours in service,

Karl de Jong
KCDCC Chair
2012-2014
