Candidates for the 46th Legislative District Democrats Executive Board
King County Democratic Central Committee (KCDCC) Alternate:
Julie Conklin (she/her)
Shane Macomber (he/him)
My name is Shane Macomber and I am asking to serve as a member of the 46th Legislative District Democrats Executive Board. I recently ran for city council and I came away from that race with a greater connection to my neighborhood and the same desire to be of service which first inspired me to run for office. I have never been more optimistic that we can make lasting positive change in our city and our district.
I was recently appointed to the position of 46th District Democrats Policy Committee Chair. I am excited to share my knowledge of city policy, local economics, housing, development and public health with our membership. We will craft a shared platform which speaks to the goals and needs of all of our North Seattle neighborhoods, as well one which stands up for our democratic values. I look forward to this challenge and am inspired by the conversations I have been having with our members.
I am asking for consideration for a seat on our Executive Board because, as a voting member, I would be an advocate for our membership, who I am working with to enshrine our shared goals and values in our platform for the coming years. I thank you for your consideration.
Nathan Antonio (he/him)
I’m Nathan Antonio, current Chair of the Effective Meetings Committee, a PCO, and a member of the 46th since 2021. I’m a life-long Washingtonian (born and raised in Yakima), and have lived in Northeast Seattle since I moved here ten years ago. I’m passionate about civic involvement and have supported Democratic causes for most of my adult life, having volunteered for and donated to campaigns locally, statewide, and nationally.
I’ve worked in housing and human services my entire career and am currently employed at the Seattle Office of Housing where I am an analyst on the team responsible for the recently passed Housing Levy. I’ve staffed government and nonprofit boards, led community engagement efforts, worked on strategic planning, and managed many highly complex and technical projects. My strongest skills involve planning and organization, coordinating teams, project management, and creating efficient business processes – especially to enhance organizational effectiveness. It’s this, rather than my views on the issues, that I hope to bring to the Executive Board. In partnership with and thanks to the many volunteers who are the real reason why our meetings go so smoothly, I have coordinated the logistics for most meetings this year (including two endorsement meetings) and have worked behind the scenes to make improvements to processes that affect many aspects of the organization. I’m primarily interested in sustaining and improving the 46th Dems as a shared vehicle to promote our aspirations for the community. Whether or not you choose to advance me to the Executive Board, I’m committed to and will continue in this work. Thank you!
Elections to fill these vacant positions will be held at the November 21 Regular Membership Meeting.
The KCDCC position is a PCO-only vote, and the Member-at-Large will be voted on by both PCOs and Members in good standing. To check on your membership status, email membership[at]46dems.org.
