36th Executive Board Makes Endorsement Recommendations
The 36th District Democrats’ Executive Board has made endorsement recommendations to the membership for the 2015 Primary Election. The membership will vote on them at its next meeting on May 20th at 7PM at the Phinney Neighborhood Center – Lower Building (6615 Dayton Ave N).
** The Executive Board made an affirmative recommendation that the 36th take the position of “no endorsement” for the Primary in the Seattle City Council – District 5 race. If adopted, the 36th may re-consider an endorsement in this race for the general election.
The recommendations listed above will each require a simple majority of the membership to pass. If any fails, a member is free to offer another endorsement motion from the floor and will require a 2/3 vote to be successful.
Only 36th members are eligible to vote on endorsements. Membership is granted to all PCOs and those who pay membership dues. Those who were members in 2014 can renew their membership and vote the same day. New members have a 25-day waiting period before obtaining voting rights.
