This Saturday March 4, 2006 is the beginning of the process to form a new state platform for the Democrats. It is also the start of the process to elect delegates to the State Democratic Convention to be held June 3, 2006 in Yakima.
In neighborhoods across the state neighbors will come together for Democratic precinct caucuses to start the process. It is a great time to meet other Democrats. It is also a great time to talk about the issues and candidates that we want to support to bring about the resurgence of Democrats and democracy in America. Since Bush was elected if anyone thought it didn’t matter who was President or which party the Governor belonged to or whether Democrats or Republicans controlled the House or the Senate there can be no doubt now.
To get more information on the caucus process you can go to the Washington State Democratic Perty website which has a frequently asked questions on caucuses and also a page where you can search for the location of your caucus. Caucuses start at 2 P.M. and usually will last no more than 2 hours.
I hope that you can make it.
