Dear PCOs, campaign volunteers and area Democrats,

Putting together a successful political organization takes a lot of moving parts (volunteers) and from the NCW Democratic point of view that means assisting with a number of political campaigns – national (presidential and the US House races), state (electing and re-electing individuals who want to protect and improve our WA society), and local (individuals who put public health and safety above party).

Our core leadership has been working on preparation for this Presidential Election year since the fall of the 2018 and it’s clear we have created a great foundation of volunteers to take on this year’s campaign activities.  In both Chelan and Douglas counties we had more individuals file to become PCOs (precinct committee officers) than ever before! Together with those other individuals who have stepped forward, our list of active volunteers is growing every day.

Join us at 11am every Tuesday for a Democratic “Coffee Break”.  We’re often joined by candidates, staff, or other interesting guests.  Request a Zoom invitation by signing up HERE.

Summary of activities:

·                 Core activities – team building and laying the foundation for then 2020 campaigns

·                 The March 10 Presidential Primary Election turnout was HUGE in both counties – an increase of more than 8k voters over the 2016 Presidential Primary

·                 We plan to send a Postcard to those voters; Special Project fundraising now underway

·                 Filed for PCO – Chelan 44 plus additional 7 more appointed PCOs / Douglas 24 plus additional 6 more appointed or acting PCOs

·                 Still seeking volunteers to assist with vacant precincts

·                 Meetings with Coordinated Campaign staff from the Washington State Democrats – an on-going activity

·                 Meeting with the staff to re-elect Dr. Schrier

·                 Meeting with the staff of Adrianne Moore

·                 Meeting with Doug McKinley (CD4 Dem candidate) campaign

·                 Planning virtual visits from our WA State Executive Democratic candidates

·                 Switching from door-to-door canvassing to Virtual Phone Banking; first targeting the No Data voters to identify Dems vs Repubs; includes calls being made locally and from the State org. 

·                 This will increase the number of positive voters we’ll need to contact during the GOTV push and will assist every Democratic candidate.

·                 Working communication between individual campaigns and our area – sign distribution and suggesting volunteers to assist

·                 Fund raising for basic office activities and Special Project –

·                 Office expenses still need at least 25 new contributors at $10 per month via ActBlue to meet our election year expenses.

·                 Special Project – have raised about $3,500 of the needed $6,000 per mailing but have enough in our funds to get this started in time to meet the Primary Election “ballot drop”.

·                 Organizing our yard sign distribution to have regional pickup areas – requesting donation to cover cost of nearly $8 per sign

·                 VOTER TURNOUT is the key to winning

·                 Virtual Joint Douglas and Chelan Democratic meetings, Coffee Hours, and special events with candidates will continue

If you want to help create a bigger impact for the elections ahead, send us a note. 

Sign up to Volunteer HERE  (https://forms.gle/33r3hfqsKj2d8CJh7 

We certainly could use additional financial support for our Special Post-Card project and future outreach.  Your donation – one-time or recurrent – will be most helpful.

TUESDAY, June 30 Take a Democratic "Coffee Break" with friends.  Join us between 11:00a-noon for a coffee break! General sharing of information and updates.  We may be joined by candidates and/or staff. If you've attended before, the Zoom mtg login is the same. To join for the first time, respond to this form https://forms.gle/MR5AeSLkyXZtSBaLA and you'll be sent the Zoom meeting ID and PW info. Join a bit early if this is your first Zoom experience.  And bring your favorite cuppa’.

 

WEDNESDAY, July 1 NCW Democrats General Meeting, 6:45p/"Get comfy with Zoom", 7:00p/Meeting. Join a monthly meeting of the central committee members (PCOs) and elected leadership for the Democrats of Chelan and Douglas counties. Generally occurs on the first Wednesday of each month, currently via Zoom.  *During the time of COVID-19 social distancing - meetings will take place in virtual space. Complete this Google form - we'll send the Zoom invitation to you, along with the draft agenda. https://forms.gle/datatg5awL63Uop49  The 070120 agenda will include (but not be limited to) Special Guest Mike Pellicciotti (D, WA House Representative for LD30 AND candidate for WA State Treasurer); Special Guests Devon Davenport and Max Toubman (campaign manager and field director for Congresswoman Kim Schrier), updates from Chelan and Douglas Co Dem PCO coordinators; state/national convention updates; coordinated campaign updates/needs; and regular business.

 

TUESDAY, July 7, 14, 21, 28 Take a Democratic "Coffee Break" with friends. See info above and sign up by responding to the same form.

 

WEDNESDAYS, Aug 5, Sept 2, Oct 7, Nov 4, Dec 2 NCW Democrats General Meetings via Zoom (mark your calendars)

 

ELECTION DATES: Tues Aug 4 Primary Election, Tues Nov 3 GENERAL ELECTION!

 

CALENDAR OF OTHER EVENTS

Given the need for safety via social distancing, we’re reviewing alternatives for holding regularly scheduled summer and fall events.  These include the July 19 picnic, Aug 14 ice-cream social, Sept 19 Chelan-Douglas Democratic Dinner, and the Nov 3 Election Night Party.  Both county fairs have been cancelled, as have our scheduled hosting of the Nason Creek Rest Stop.  Stay tuned for updates. 

 

Instead of planning events and auctions, we are pouring all of our time and energies into contacting voters.  Since there will be no door-knocking, we’re using phone calls, texts, and written postcards.  Please dedicate a few hours to help with this VERY IMPORTANT work.

Volunteer PCOs and others are building teams in every one of the 137 precincts in our two counties. Their goals: help elect Democrats up and down the ballot and find every Democrat and make sure they vote -- first in the August 4 primary election, then on November 3, 2020, when we'll celebrate a BLUE LETTER DAY for our country and the world.

 

SIGNS: We now have signs for Schrier, Biden, and Moore.  Come to NCWDem HQ for signs, if you live in the Greater Wenatchee area.  Check with us if you live in Mansfield, Coulee Dam, Waterville, Leavenworth, Lake Wenatchee, Entiat, or Chelan.  We now have people in outlying communities who are our “sign depots,” willing to distribute campaign signs to people nearby.

 

A very brief word about finances.  We hope each of you will consider making a one-time or recurrent contribution to help us pay the rent and keep the lights on at our office, buy campaign signs and swag, and to print and stamp several mailings to the many people whose doors we can’t knock on this year.  If stopping by the office, cash or checks (payable to “NCW Democrats”) are welcome, or use the ActBlue links below.

 

It’s good for our souls when we work together to make this community and our country a better place.  Thank you for doing some of the heavy lifting!

Dear Democrats and Friends,


Our hearts are broken for George Floyd and his family, and for so many others over so much time, for the injustices that exist in our country.  These challenges weigh heavily atop those of the pandemic and this out-of-control administration.  Stress and concern surround us, day and night.  There's no way to sugar-coat it.  THIS is why we need to do the work ahead.


With that in mind, this will be short.  More details will follow in the next few days.


TUESDAY, June 2 Take a Democratic "Coffee Break" with friends.  Join us between 11:00a-noon for a coffee break! General sharing of information and updates, plus we'll be joined by LD12 Democratic candidate Adrianne Moore between 11:40-12. If you've attended before, the Zoom mtg login is the same. To join for the first time, respond to this form https://forms.gle/MR5AeSLkyXZtSBaLA and you'll be sent the Zoom meeting ID and PW info. Join a bit early if this is your first Zoom experience.

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends,

Over recent weeks, we've taken time to assess the impacts of COVID-19 on our community and our local Democratic efforts.  We're shifting our focus from in-person events and thousands of doors visited, to (temporarily) moving most of our meetings and events into a virtual environment.  We'll be watchful -- but not idle -- as our governor and science lead us forward.  In the meantime, we have work to do.  We need to elect thoughtful, smart, and effective leaders.  We're reminded of the importance of that every day.  And we invite you to be involved in whatever way you can.

For the benefit of this eNewsletter, we have 3 important things to share:
  • NCW Democrats General Monthly Meeting  Wednesday, 5/6/2020, 7:00p: Join us for a Zoom meeting to learn about coordinated campaign updates, precinct committee officer recruitment efforts, upcoming events, and much more.  For this online event, you can join by computer or smartphone using both audio and video, or by standard phone, using only audio.  To enhance the security of the Zoom environment, fill out this form https://forms.gle/AXapBwEn4dvQywZB8 and we'll send you the Zoom invitation link and instructions.  Hope to see you at the meeting. 
  • NCW Democrats will host Tuesday "Coffee Breaks" -- every week!  Tuesdays, 5/12/2020, 11a--noon.  Join as early as 10:30 to get comfortable with the Zoom technology.  At these virtual gatherings we'll host guest speakers, candidates, share information about how to get involved and make it count, and so much more.  Again, use this link: https://forms.gle/2KfnSnFTmF68coBt5.  Fill out the simple form and we'll send you a Zoom invitation to join the "Coffee Break."   Feel free to "Bring your own beverage!"  
  • Precinct Committee Officers NEEDED!  May 11--15 is filing week for local elections.  In order to be elected as a PCO, you must file to run for office with your county elections office.  We have wonderful volunteers who lead precinct teams in approximately half of the voting precincts in Chelan and Douglas counties.  In order to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, we need to expand the team.  We hope that you'll become a member of the "Blue Crew!"  Contact us to help.
At this time, we are finalizing the election of local delegates to our state and national Democratic conventions.  Congratulations to the 36 people who are running for those delegate positions.  Names and results in our next eNews.

Our HQ Team continues to work on projects that you'll see soon.  Yard signs will be available in ~June.  We anticipate a Field Organizer will join us in June.  Phone banking is happening every day, Sunday thru Thursday.  It's easy and good training is available.

Adrianne Moore is running a smart campaign to replace Keith Goehner in the WA House!  Doug McKinley just entered the CD4 race and plans to beat Dan Newhouse.  Let's get behind them.  Offer to host a Zoom meeting to introduce them to your closest friends.  Volunteer to make calls.  Donate to their efforts. 

Say, have you thought about running for office?  We have resources to help.

We're still hoping to be able to hold the annual picnic on 7/19 5p at Hydro Park in E Wenatchee.  We also have the county fairs scheduled in late Aug and early Sept, and our annual dinner at the Wenatchee Convention Center on 9/19.  Everything is, of course dependent upon best practices for social distancing.  

Join us for a Zoom gathering soon.  We miss you.  And don't forget that if you can spare the price of one coffee each month, you could help us make up our budget shortfall.  All of our fundraising events are cancelled or on hold, but we still have the work to do.  Together.

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends, 

We’re ramping it up at Dem HQ and throughout NCW, and we’re getting to work.  All we need is you.  There is no effort too small or passion too large for the work we have in front of us.  We all understand just how important it is that we join together in a coordinated effort to rescue our country, our democracy.  We welcome and value your ideas, talents, and time. 

RIGHT NOW: Call us for a list of Democrats to call to make sure they vote in the Presidential Primary Election!  Whether you have 5 min or 5 hours, we can use your help. 

Since our last email, many of us have rallied and marched (thank you, Wenatchee Women’s March and Wenatchee350!);  gathered to watch debates in Cashmere, E Wenatchee, and Manson; we’ve attended town halls with CONGRESS WOMAN DR KIM SCHRIER!; we’ve trained and practiced using some new Democratic Party tools; registered new voters (thank you, Dems of Cashmere, volunteers for CAFÉ, and many others!); we’ve written notes and postcards to voters; knocked on doors and made phone calls to campaign for candidates AND now to Get Out The Vote before March 10.  That’s just the tip of the iceberg.  Our HQ Office is staffed with a team of volunteers who will help drive democratic activism in the months ahead.  Come on down!

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends,

 

We’ve made it to a new year – some may be surprised that we’ve survived the past 3.  Nevertheless, we wish you happiness in large and small ways and hope that you achieve all of your goals.  We hope that some of your resolutions are the same as ours.  We have work to do together!

 

Thank you to all who contributed to our successes in 2019: we intended to raise the $$$ to keep our office open, staff it efficiently, conduct trainings and outreach.  We did it!  We thank the candidates who ran for office and their campaign crews, our volunteers and financial supporters, thanks to the event and auction planners, Democratic booth staffers and attendees, to the state committee members who kept us linked with the state party, to the leadership of the WA-Dem State Party and Tina Podlodowski (and her amazing and resourceful staff), to our neighboring county organizations, to Kim Schrier (isn’t she doing an amazing job!) and Dow Constantine and Bob Ferguson, Jay Inslee, Laurie Jinkins, and others who have noticed our efforts and who support us.  It takes a village to accomplish important work and we appreciate each one of you!

 

THIS WEEK and coming soon: (Organized by Democrats or Other Groups)

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends, 

As we prepare for cherished gatherings with family and friends over the weeks ahead, it’s hard to totally push aside concerns about the state of our nation and its place in the world.  The House will take an historic vote to impeach the president on Wednesday.  If the votes exist, this president will be impeached (Repeat slowly).  Most pundits and pollsters project that this will result in the Senate exonerating the president, when it holds a trial over the weeks ahead.  Many battles fought and won so far during this presidency, but game not over.  Please take lots of deep breaths, hug loved ones, and nurture your body and spirit for the months ahead. 

THIS WEEK and coming soon:  

Tuesday 12/17/2019Take a Democratic “Coffee Break” 10a—noon, at Dem HQ, 768 S Mission, Wenatchee.  Come for the first hour to catch up on local activities in an informal daytime setting.  For those who wish to stay, we’ll have a discussion from 11-noon about the articles of impeachment.  These coffee gatherings happen in Wenatchee on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.  Drop in! 

Tuesday 12/17/2019: NCW Dem Winter Party.  All are welcome!  Attend this family-friendly event from 5—7p at the Dragon’s Lair (Eastmont Lanes, 704 Grant Rd, E Wen).  No charge, but your donation of non-perishable food (for the NCW Food Bank) and a few dollars (to help offset our expenses for pizza and cake) will be appreciated!  First 10 kids get a free game token!  First 10 pizzas are on us!  If you attend the rally at Memorial Park (see below), this will be a great place to warm up afterward!  Come have a little food and beverage with friends.  It’s been a long one two three years!  Let’s celebrate our successes together.  

 

Tuesday 12/17/2019: “IMPEACH & REMOVE: Nobody Is Above The Law” Rally at Memorial Park, 5:30p.  Join this historic nationwide mobilization on the eve of Trump's impeachment vote.  Locally organized by Indivisible Wenatchee https://www.facebook.com/events/611551596320879/?active_tab=about

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends,

 

The Oath of Office has deep meaning to those who serve; the Oath of Citizenship recited by new citizens has a profound effect; the words and meaning of the US Constitution establish aspirational goals for much of the world.  The abuses of this president and many who flank him are obvious.  Articles of impeachment have been written and published.  The House Judicial Committee will consider amendments this week (mark ups), before voting the articles out of committee.  Next week, the entire House of Representatives will debate them and a final vote will be taken to impeach—maybe by Tue/Wed.  Please read the articles of impeachment (thank you, Ed M, for sharing this link: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/12/10/us/politics/articles-impeachment-document-pdf.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage).  Consider attending a special Democratic “Coffee Break” next Tues at 10a at Dem HQ to have a group reading and discussion.  The sober nature of these words (and recent years) weigh heavily on all of us.  But we will persist!

 

NEXT WEEK and coming soon: 

 

Tuesday 12/17/2019Take a Democratic “Coffee Break” 10a—noon, at Dem HQ, 768 S Mission, Wenatchee.  Come for the first hour to catch up on local activities in an informal daytime setting.  For those who wish, we’ll have a discussion from 11-noon about the articles of impeachment.  These coffee gatherings happen in Wenatchee on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.  Drop in!
