On Monday, May 19, the 37th District Democrats met with nearly 200 members present and voting to decide on our candidate and ballot measure endorsements! It was by far the largest turnout of members the 37th District Democrats have had in quite some time. Thank you to all those who attended on a beautiful spring evening when you could have been in your backyard, at a park, or otherwise enjoying the wearther outdoors. The highlights of the evening were, unanimous endorsements of US Representatives Jim McDermott and Adam Smith, a 1st ballot endorsement of Pramila Jayapal for State Senate, unanimous endoresments of State Representatives Sharon Tomiko Santos and Eric Pettigrew, and unambiguous unanimous endorsements of NO on I-591 and YES on I-594! We also endorsed many judicial candidates and other ballot mesures for the full list of endorsement check out our endorsements page. At our June 9 meeting we will take up the two races that were tabled and any other races or ballot measure that come to our attention. See you in June, if not earlier on the campaign trail.
As spring turns into summer in the 37th Legislative District, our calendar is beginning to heat up as well. Please check our Events Calendar or Facebook page for the most up-to-date information on important meetings and events across the district.
