Endorsements begin…

Below are the candidates that our group, Olympic Peninsula Progressives (OPP) endorsed at our meeting, yesterday, (Friday, July 20, 2018), in Port Angeles. 

Note that we have chosen not to make endorsements in some of the other local and state races.

We are a political action group, which emerged out of the 2016 Presidential Primary Season. Many of our members met, at that time, and we have continued to work collaboratively, with our friends and activists in Jefferson and Grays Harbor Counties…on the issues which brought us together, to support Bernie Sanders for President.

We (OPP) have sponsored two events during this election cycle: Candidate Search event, in Forks, WA, in April 2018, and 2018 Candidates’ Forum, held in Port Angeles, on July 13, 2018; both of these events were advertised in the Peninsula Daily News (and Forks Forum).

Our next event, “2018 Progressive Candidates’ Forum”, is planned for this coming Friday, July 27, at the Gardiner Community Center, in Sequim, WA; doors open at 5:15 PM, candidate speeches start at 6 PM.

The event will be videotaped by: papaonline.tv-for future viewing, on-line.

We will submit our future event, for your on-line calendar, but really wanted to get the word out about our endorsements, as soon as possible.
