The next meeting of the King County Democrats Legislative Action Committee is the 3rd Sunday January 16th from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Des Moines Library. We will be discussing the issues in our proposed legislative agenda, and issues coordinators are invited to give a five minute presentation and answer questions. The Washington State Budget & Policy Center will have an analyst to discuss revenue priorities & strategy.
We are asking each Legislative District, as part of your reorganization, to elect or appoint an LAC representative or chair. This job is to attend our monthly meetings on the 3rd Sunday of the month and to report back to LD meetings, including organizing carpool groups to attend our Lobby Day in Olympia on Monday, February 21st.
Attendees will get briefings on our issues to prepare them to meet directly with their legislators and a box lunch ($20 registration in advance). All the King County legislators are invited to address the meeting, and the Governor has been invited to keynote. Attendance is limited and pre-registration is required. Sarajane Siegfriedt, Sarajane3h@comcast.net, 206-440-5829 for questions. Many will stay in Olympia for the Washington State Democrats Crab Feed at 5 p.m. in Lacey.
