On June 2nd, we’ll host the Congressional Breakfast and then the State Convention. During the State Convention we’ll hear from our candidates including Jay Inslee and Sen. Maria Cantwell. We have invited a keynote speaker and will update you when we have confirmation. The Delegates will be voting on the official Democratic Nominations of Congressional Candidates and Statewide Candidates. They will also vote on the platform and resolutions.
We also have activities on June 3rd. This is when the WSDCC Legislative District Committee Members will be voting on the rest of our National Delegates going to Charlotte, NC.
We are excited to announce our keynote speaker for the Convention Gala Banquet on Friday June 1st will be the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey – Cory Booker.
A native of northern New Jersey, Cory Booker’s passion for politics and justice was instilled at an early age by a family committed to change. His parents successfully fought against racial discrimination and shattered corporate ceilings, inspiring him to pursue a life of breaking barriers and working for change. On May 9, 2006, Cory Booker was elected Mayor of Newark, with a landslide victory in Newark. He was re-elected in 2010. Booker brings his passion for social change to the podium. His drive and commitment are inspirational to audiences across the country.
