Support Bill Ramos and Lisa Callan for Washington State House in LD5!

We’re pleased to support these two excellent candidates for State House. These races are two of our best prospects to gain seats in the WA State House. The 5th LD is wholly inside the 8th CD, so our work here also helps activate the voters who will keep Dino Rossi out of office. The 5th LD includes Snoqualmie, Issaquah, North Bend, Black Diamond, and Maple Valley.

5 Days of Action 2018

If you’re anything like me, watching the news these days makes me wonder what I can do here at home to make sure Washington remaining a safe haven for liberal ideas and an example for the country of progressive policies in action. Control of Olympia is anything but certain, with only a one seat majority in the state senate and a two seat majority in the state house of representatives and vulnerable Democrats running for their political lives in tough primary battles in purple districts. But there is allot to be hopeful for! These LD races can often come down to razor thin margins, which means that if we put in the effort, and push at the grassroots level, these are all winnable races.

 

So what can we do in the fighting 46th? It’s time to go on offense! We are headed to 4 nearby LDs to help turn out their voters, support awesome local Democrats, and maybe flip a couple seats BLUE!

 

In order to make this a reality WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Would you commit to help us canvass at one of these upcoming Days of Action?

 

  • Saturday, July 21st- 47th LD, Kent/Covington

 

  • Sunday, July 22nd- 48th LD, Redmond

  • Sunday, July 29th- 30th LD, Federal Way
