2014 Washoe County Convention

Washoe County Democrats may now go online to register for the May 3 County Convention at Wooster High School.  It's quick and easy to do.

The County Convention will be an excellent opportunity to meet and talk to most of the candidates who will appear on our 2014 ballots, starting with the June 10 Primary Election.  

We will also elect delegates to the June 21 Nevada State Democratic Convention, which will be in Reno; elect our 2014-2016 Central Committee; and adopt our 2014 County Party Platform.

We'll have some coffee to get us going in the morning - when you register online, please indicate whether you want to purchase the box lunch.

It's shaping up to be a fun, informative day, so we look forward to seeing you there!
Register online here.

Join Letters to the Editor Workshop, April 29

Letters to the EditorPlease join us for the Letters to the Editor (LTE) workshop, set for Tuesday, April 29, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at HQ. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A TUESDAY RATHER THAN THURSDAY NIGHT!

With a dysfunctional Congress and plenty of local issues and good candidates, there is no dearth of subjects for LTEs, especially if we look at how national issues impact Nevadans.

Bring three ideas you’d like to write about, some facts to support at least one idea and a rough draft if you can on a flash drive. Bring a laptop or mobile device if you have one so we can use our big screen to edit each other’s letters. 

We’ll have snacks and a great time while supporting our progressive values!

Celebration of Bob McGowan's Life

The church was overflowing with friends and family, including many WashoeDEMS, who came to remember Bob at a touching service last Friday (see photos below).

Our headquarters seems a little emptier knowing he won't be dropping by to share stories and chat about why it's so important to elect Democrats to office.

Rest in peace, Bob.  We'll think of you often.

Senator Richard Bryan and Ginnie Kersey

Irene Brouhard and Thelma Matlin

Dennis Colling and State Treasurer Kate Marshall


Dave Kladney and Deb Drum
