With the 2023 election season now underway KCDCC is sponsoring events to support voter education and voter registration. We hope you take advantage of these opportunities to gain knowledge and get engaged.
Meet the Candidates: Potluck Mixer
October 21 from 6:30pm-8:30pm
The Art Spirit Gallery
This free public mixer is a great opportunity to meet several of the candidates running for local positions in the November election. It is also a chance to learn about the Open Primary Initiative and sign the petition. Plus, there will be a voter registration table for anyone who needs to register to vote or update their registration. Note: If you have moved since the last election, you will need to reregister.
This event is free and open to the public.
Join Idaho Democratic Legislators for Lunch
October 26 from 11:30am-1:30pm
Capones Pub on the Green at the Ponderosa Springs Golf Course
Join House Minority Leader Ilana Rubel along with Senators James Ruchti, James Just, and Janie Ward Engelking, plus Representatives Ned Burns and Steve Berch. Hear their views on the latest legislative priorities, plans for the 2024 Idaho presidential primary, and other relevant issues.
Run for Office
If you have ever served on a board of trustees or led a local civic organization, then consider running for office in local government. The fact is your community needs experienced people like you to help develop public policy and guide local development. If you have a knack for social networking, enjoy civic activism, and find fulfillment in serving others, you already possess key attributes for success.
Kootenai County voters deserve a choice. Even without previous political experience, an honest and straightforward Democrat offers voters a better choice than the extremists we can expect the GOP to put forward.
In the coming weeks we will be recruiting Democrats to run in 2024. If you have even the slightest interest, please contact me at KootenaiCountyDemocrats@gmail.com.
Thank you and have a wonderful week everyone.
