2017 Winter Auction Fundraiser and Festivus Party


the presentation of the 2017 32nd Dems Service Awards



*(We will start serving dinner at 5:30pm, the auction will start at 6:30pm.)
Details: Just like last year, we will have a Live Auction, Silent Auction, and some raffle items (white elephant type of items that you contribute).
Start thinking about what you’d like to donate. Bring your donations to any of our meetings and/or bring your donation on the night of the auction. The earlier we get the donations, the better!!
We will prepare a wonderful dinner, dessert and there will also be coffee, and tea and spirits!. We are asking for a suggested donation of $10 per person, however, no one will be turned away!
*Can you bring a dessert to compliment our dinner on Saturday, December 2nd – – contact Marilyn Dauer!
**We need help cleaning up at the end of the evening, call Marilyn at 425-478-9261. 🙂 Thanks!

CANDIDATE INFORMATION – Endorsements Overview

The 32nd Legislative Democrats Endorsement Committee exists for the purpose of vetting candidates running for office in any particular year. Our by-laws state that only self-identified Democratic candidates may be endorsed by the District organization. Judicial candidates, who are not allowed to make such identifications, are the only exception to this requirement. 


Contact Endorsement Committee Chair, Stephanie Harris to schedule an interview. or (425) 672-1676 

Work with the Democratic Party Candidates of the 32nd LD to assure and continue the tradition of the 32nd as a democratic stronghold in the Puget Sound corridor!
