PCOs are also the only ones eligible to vote on removing someone from an office to which they have previously been elected. Acting PCOs are not eligible to vote. Acting PCOs do not live in the precincts they are representing.
Please RSVP to Linda Winter Pace at email@example.com because it is vital we have a quorum.
The Whatcom Vice-Chair is a voting member of the Executive Boards of the Whatcom Democrats and the 40th LD Democrats, and as such, is expected to attend the meetings and be a paid member or a PCO of both organizations. Also, the Whatcom Vice-Chair represents the 40th LD on the Whatcom Democrats Candidate Committee and the Whatcom Democrats Crosstalk Committee if the Chair doesn’t live in Whatcom County or the Chair asks the Vice-Chair to be the 40th LD representative on one or both of those committees.
If you, or someone you know, are interested in running for either Chair or Whatcom Vice-Chair, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and please include “40th LD” in the subject. We need some people to step up for these positions! If you have thought about getting more involved in the 40th LD Democrats, now is the time!” Click Here to review the 40th LD ByLaws.
