Letter from the Chair, Lynn Campbell

Greetings fellow Democrats,

I would personally like to congratulate all of our candidates for their elections and wins.  We nearly had a clean sweep….but make no mistake we did awesome and we have finally (except for a mandatory machine count which won’t change the outcome) flipped the 10th!  A job well done by the countless volunteers, PCOs and Coffee n Cards who were out doorbelling even outside our county, wrote postcards, phone banked and truly worked hard to get our candidates elected!

Clyde Shavers, must go through a machine recount.  Although he is up by 1,000 votes in Skagit County, (way to go Skagit!) he is ahead by 211 votes district wide. But I know we can offer our congratulations to our “Almost-Representative Clyde Shavers”  The results should be finalized next week.

In the meantime, a big Congratulations to Dave Paul, our incumbent in the 10th!

Congratulations also goes to:

Patty Murray U. S. Congress, Senator,
Rick Larsen, U.S. Congress House of Representatives,
Steve Hobbs, Secretary of State,
Debra Lekanoff, Representative in the 40th LD,
Alex Ramel, Representative in the 40th LD,
Sandra Perkins, Skagit County Auditor,
Lisa Janicki, Skagit County Commissioner,
Jackie Brunson, Skagit County Treasurer,
Melissa Beaton, Skagit County Clerk,
Judge Jennifer Howson, Skagit County District Court,
Haley Thompson, Skagit County Coroner,
and Don McDermott, Skagit County Sheriff.

Although these candidates did not seek our endorsement, I would like to congratulate:

Rich Weyrich, Skagit County Prosecuting Attorney
and Danny Haggen, Skagit County Assessor

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank all of you who signed up to observe the election process, and certainly my utmost gratitude goes to Angela Napoliello-Ivory for all of the time and effort she put into organizing volunteer sign ups, and most of all, I would like to recognize the fact that she covered the shifts which were not filled, AND  filling in when volunteers simply did not show up. Please join me in reaching out and thanking her and offering your congratulations to all of our superb candidates.

School Board elections will be in February.  Let’s work hard together to find and elect good Democrats for these positions!

Lynn Campbell, she, her pronouns
