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! 

Watch for more frequent updates.  After the election, we’ll share details about the legislative district caucuses and county conventions, etc.  There will be so many opportunities for you to help, in your neighborhood and throughout NCW.  But please make sure to VOTE.

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!

posted Dec 16, 2019, 12:07 PM by Douglas County Democrats

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 

Thursday 12/19/2019, 5pm: 6th Presidential Primary Debate Watch Parties Enjoy watching this debate from the comfort of your own home! We’ll gather again in Jan 2020 to watch the 7th debate (date tbd).

 

Mark Your Calendars: 

Saturday 01/18/2020, 10—12ish: 2020 Women+sMarch Wenatchee  Additional details will be published and shared soon, but Attorney General Bob Ferguson has asked to join us again for the event!  (We said YES, please!)  Plan to attend sign-making events in early-mid January!  All will be welcome to rally and hear from great speakers (indoors at the PAC) and march for climate justice, immigration, human rights, and other critical causes (on a 1 mile route around downtown Wenatchee).  The event is being planned by a diverse group of people from our community.  It is non-partisan and open to all.  Follow progress and updates at: https://www.facebook.com/events/443915576559402/ 

NOTE: Our next eNews letter will share a list of important 2020 dates to put on your calendar.  We’ll need all hands on deck to do the work ahead!

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!

posted Dec 11, 2019, 8:50 AM by Douglas County Democrats

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends,


The 2019 election cycle is now mostly in our rear-view mirror.  Congratulations to candidates who ran for local nonpartisan offices, and to those who will now serve our communities!  A special recognition goes to those candidates who asked to use the resources of the WA State Democratic Party.  We offered these resources of data and training to anyone who personally identifies as a Democrat, regardless of the partisan nature of the office.  We hope the assets provided made their campaign efforts more targeted and effective.  We look forward to working with additional candidates in the future!


What a political week we’ve just experienced.  Congressional impeachment hearings with new disclosures of information, a well-attended annual Democratic dinner, lots of local contact with Congresswoman Schrier and other Party luminaries.  As our dinner committee wraps up final details, we can share that 250+ Democrats attended a great event on 11/9.  We were entertained by the special music of the Saddle Rockers, inspired by young activists, motivated by elected officials, and called to action by our Party chair, Tina Podlodowski.  


THIS WEEK and coming soon: 


Tuesday 11/19/2019Take a Democratic “Coffee Break” 10a—noon, at Dem HQ, 768 S Mission, Wenatchee.  Come to catch up on local activities in an informal daytime setting.  These coffee gatherings happen in Wenatchee on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.  Drop in!

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends,

 

A sober and grave day, but let’s “right” this ship!  The House just voted to begin public impeachment hearings with nearly all Democrats (+ Justin Amash) voting yes.  Not one Republican joined them.  The timeline for hearings and successive actions promises to be short and intense.  Our republic will need your input and support.  


At local, state, and national levels, Democrats are working for us.  Although progress seems excruciatingly slow, we know they’re being methodical, thorough, and strategic, and trust the outcomes will bring better tomorrows for our country and the world.  Whether you consider yourself to lean blue or green or purple, we know there are BIG problems to be solved, and to do that we need to work together. 

 

In the meantime, here on the home-front, we have work to do to become a more cohesive Democratic organization.  Grassroots training and work in every neighborhood, an increased visibility and voice, continued civic involvement, outreach to one another to hold up a truly big umbrella – all will help foster the democracy that we desire.   Consider attending the dinner on 11/9 – it’s being organized and held for you to meet one another and to hear from people who are on the front lines right now.  We’d love to have you join us!

 

Notes for THIS WEEK and coming soon:

 

NOW:  BALLOTS should be in your hands (or you’ve already voted!).  If you haven’t received yours, call your county elections office.  Remember that you can register AND vote up until 8p on election day, if you go to your election office.  Go to your personal online voter registration page to check out what’s in your personal voter file and on your ballot (https://voter.votewa.gov/WhereToVote.aspx).

 

Between NOW and 11/5:  Volunteer to help one or more of your favorite candidates running for office this year.  There are Democrats on our ballots who are running for these non-partisan positions!  They need an army of support to win their races.  Also, if you’d like a short phone list of Democrats to “nudge” to vote before the election, let us know!  Or stop by the office and we’ll make phone calls together!

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends, 

Our system of checks and balances is working, though not fast enough for most of us.  Please keep shining a light on the path forward – we’re all in this together! 

Notes for THIS WEEK and coming soon:

Friday 10/18/2019:  BALLOTS expected to arrive in our mailboxes.  If you don’t receive yours before the following Monday, call your county elections office.  Remember that you can register AND vote up until 8p on election day, if you go to your election office.  You can register or update your voter registration by mail or online until 10/28/2019.  Check out what’s in your personal voter file and on your ballot at https://voter.votewa.gov/WhereToVote.aspx.
