What a busy August we’re having!

This is shaping up to be a very busy summer indeed! Thanks to everyone who came and supported us at the picnic over the weekend. (I apologize that I was unable to join for I was out of town!) But I heard from numerous members that the event was a great time, and I certainly look forward to being there next year.

As for this week, we will be busy at the Kitsap County Fair with our new booth setup! Special thanks to Sandra Bauer, Paul Andrews, and Jim & Ginger Sommerhauser for their help with the fair booth. If you are signed up to volunteer, please remember to bring your fair ticket and parking pass with you. If you couldn’t sign up to volunteer, drop by and see us anyway! We’ll be selling new buttons, bumper stickers, and t-shirts and look forward to seeing you August 26 – 30 between 10:00 am and 10:00 pm!

And, for those who have been inquiring, I have decided to run for Chair again in September. Work has brought me back to Kitsap County, and I look forward to earning your vote and working with you all again as we enter a busy presidential year.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at chair@kitsapdemocrats.com.

Best, Katherine Woods

Search for New Chairperson

Search for a new chairperson begins

Unfortunately, former chairman Henning Larsen had to resign at our July 2015 meeting. Henning has been instrumental in the party over the last several years, and we thank him for his service.

In the interim, immediate past chair Katherine Woods will serve as interim chair. Since we do not have a traditional meeting in August–our picnic is on August 22nd instead–the special election will not be held until our September meeting.

Please note: per our by laws, the chair needs to be male as the vice chair is female.

If you or anyone you know are interested in running for chair, please email chair@kitsapdemocrats.com for more information.
