Thurston County Convention

Komachin Middle School
3650 College St SE
Lacey, WA, 98503

Come give input on the Thurston County Democrats' platform. What issues matter to you in 2018-2019.

What / Why

The county convention is a forum for our platform to be debated, edited, and voted upon. It contains the values and issues of our community, and it instructs the local politicians and candidates as to what matters to their constituency. It also is combined with the county platforms from around the state to form the Washington State Democratic Party's platform, which is passed at the state convention this June.

The Thurston Platform Committee, a diverse group of local volunteers, has updated the platform from the last cycle (2016) and created a draft version of the platform. This will be presented at the convention, and those in attendance can then make suggestions for revisions and amendments. This is Democracy the way our country's founders intended it to be!

We need to hear your voice, so please consider attending and give your 2 cents. We greatly appreciated it.

The 2016 platform can be found on our website.
