2020 Early March eNews

posted Mar 10, 2020, 12:26 PM by Douglas County Democrats

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.
