Meet Tina Podlodowski

You’re invited to come and meet Tina Podlodowski, our candidate for Secretary of State, Thursday afternoon at the WA Democrats’ Coordinated Campaign office in Pasco.  It is important to elect a leader who supports Same-Day Voter Registration, Postage-Free Ballots, and broad "voter engagement" initiatives.
     When:  4:00 PM-5:00 PM, Thursday, October 13
     Where:  UA Local Union 598 Plumbers and Steamfitters, 1328 N 28th Ave, Pasco

An hour or so after meeting with us at Local 598, Tina will appear at CBC in a debate with incumbent Kim Wyman for election to Secretary of State.
     When:  6:00 PM, Thursday, October 13
     Where:  Gjerde Center, Columbia Basin College, Pasco

PCOs and Precinct Leaders, if you’re going to Pasco to meet Tina Podlodowski tomorrow afternoon, please plan to pick up your list of Coordinated Campaign (general election) targeted voters and accompanying literature.

Exactly one week from today, on October 19, the Benton County Election Dept. will mail out the ballots for the November 8 election.  Before the voters get their ballots, please doorbell the Coordinated Campaign list of “lazy Democrats” in your precinct.  These are people who over the years have voted only sporadically and who therefore should be given extra encouragement.  Contact Tony Ramirez (; 509-790-8556) by tomorrow noon, if possible, so he can have the list and literature for your precinct ready for you to pick up at 4 or 5 PM.  Tell Tony the name of your precinct.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

NOTICE:  The date of the 8th LDDO’s October meeting has been changed.  Instead of on the 3rd Wednesday, the usual day for our monthly general meeting, we will meet the Monday before.
     When:  6:00 PM, Monday, October 17
     Where:  Laborers’ Local 348 Hall, 2505 Duportail St, Richland

The agenda will include:  Presentation of the Get Out The Vote (GOTV) plan for the 8th LD.  (GOTV support materials and guidance for PCOs and Precinct Leaders will be provided.)  Report on 8th LD volunteers’ participation to date in the State Party’s “Local Party Challenge”:  doorbelling and phonebanking for the Coordinated Campaign.  Consideration of the Carbon Tax Initiative I-732.

The reason for the change in the date of our October meeting is that two important debates are being held on the evening of Wednesday, October 19:
6:00 PM.  Third and final Presidential Debate.  (Available on a television or computer near you.)
8:00 PM.  Gubernatorial Debate.  Governor Jay Inslee and challenger Bill Bryant will debate at the Gjerde Center, Columbia Basin College, Pasco.  Tickets are available through the Seattle City Club.
