Our thanks to all the candidates who took time out of a busy weekend to visit with us at the summer picnic. We were joined by County Council contenders Barry Buchanan and Rebecca Boonstra, Port Commission candidates Barry Wenger and Michael Shepard, Ferndale City Council candidate Kate Hansen, and Bellingham City Councilor Michael Lilliquist. It was a treat to hear from all of these great Democrats. 2018 State Senate candidate Mike McAuley gave us a sneak preview of things to come.
Congratulations to Rebecca and her campaign manager Emily Blessington for their awesome winning entry in the dessert auction.
Thank you to those who helped with this year’s picnic: Naomi and Roger Murphy, Karen Finney, Kurt Price, Judy Mullenix, Peggy Borgens, Vicki Savage, and our Finance Chair, Heather Christianson, who always goes above and beyond.
