Chair Marcee Stone-Vekich's Message for July
On the heels of the successful 2014 State Democratic Convention, we should take a moment to celebrate another great success - the
re-construction and re-opening of the now energy efficient South Park Bridge on June 30, 2014. King County Executive Dow Constantine's
leadership made this possible. He secured funding from local, state, and federal agencies and brought together an extraordinary coalition
to bring back the bridge. This was no simple accomplishment at the height of the recession.
"I made a promise five years ago that we
would build a new, safer bridge to connect our industrial heartland to the rest of King County - and we're ready to deliver," said
Executive Constantine. "Not only will this help local manufacturers and family-owned businesses, it will reunite working communities in
the Lower Duwamish area." "The opening of the new South Park Bridge will be a long-awaited community celebration," said King County
Councilmember Joe McDermott, who represents the area. "This project is a testament to the South Park community and our ability to get
things done by working across jurisdictions for a common goal." We elected them and together we made a difference in our community.
Let's make another difference for local progressive change and take back the State Senate. We need to fund education and our
infrastructure, protect our environment and women's health choices. The 34th has already contributed $1,000 each to the senate and house
campaign committees but we can do more as an organization and as individuals. We can doorbell, make phone calls, and write checks, large
and small, to elect progressive State Senators all over Washington. Go to this link http://www.senatedemocrats.org to make a contribution
to elect Shari Song, Matt Isenhour, Tami Green, Judi Arbogast, Rich Cowan, Gabriel Munoz, and many other excellent candidates who will
bridge the gap created by the republicans and faux-democrats in the State Senate. Our Senator Sharon Nelson is working hard to take back
the State Senate. Let's give her a hand.
The South Park Bridge opening ceremony and celebration will begin at 3 p.m. on June 29. The bridge will open the following day.
Let's party and then let's get to work.
