It is my privilege to serve as Chair of the King County Democratic Party. We are at a critical juncture in our nation's history. We can either idly sit by and allow our ideals and values to be destroyed or we can stand up for what we know is right. If we are going to stand up and be strong we have to do it together. The only way our party will be strong enough to defeat our opposition is if we do it in unity. As Democrats, we might not agree on everything. But we need to come together and acknowledge we share the same values. We all want safe neighborhoods, quality schools and an economy that thrives for everyone. If we come together, stay together and fight together we can make our dream a reality.
I hope you take a moment to reflect on what individual contribution you can make in order to ensure our success. You can volunteer, you can donate, you can help lead our party or you can run for office. No effort is too small - we will need all hands on deck. We will make it through this dark time and we will succeed. We can win, we must win but we must do it together.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
