Election Night events

We finally reached the end of the campaign season, spent the last day going door to door in Pierce County, holding ballot collections in Tulalip and working on the ground in Yakama and beyond.  From what we can tell, our ground staff tell us that Native turnout in Washington was extremely high.

We rushed to Seattle to catch the Native election night parties at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center and the Presidential Suite of the Westin (thanks Claudia, Andrea, Iris).   We are totally exhausted, somewhat reflective, and absolutely amazed at all the hard work our Board and volunteers accomplished over the past year.

As we await the swearing in of a brand new 44th President – Barack Obama – and the re-swearing in of Governor Christine Gregorie, we also want to congratulate Rep. John McCoy (D-36) who easily won re-election to the Washington House of Representatives, as well as Jeff Morris (D-40) also won handily.  The race out in Spokane for Don Barlow (D-6) is still too close to call.

We’ll keep you posted on all the new developments happening out here in Washington!
