Proposed Motion to adopt the 2022 Platform:
"It is moved that we adopt the Washington State Democrats 2022 platform as our own, and supplement it with a 46th Legislative District City of Seattle Section, as developed by our members during a working session in December, for adoption by December 31, 2022, and allow for our members to vote for it online, or by mail-in ballot for any member who needs non-online accommodation."
Explanation: We will provide a link to a survey during the meeting, for members that are interested in participating, to select a date and time. As we did with the State platform, Platform Chair Hunter Brown will provide the ability for people to participate without attending the meeting date and time that was selected, by allowing them to offer amendments in advance of the meeting. The group will then discuss and vote on the amendments.
For a starting point and reference, the previous Seattle section of the last local Platform is found on Page 25 of the 2018 Platform
