WA meet Tami Green, Democratic Party


There’s a lot to be excited about this year –

Tami Green is running for State Senate in the 28th District

Click here and say:
I’m with Tami

We have a great opportunity to unseat one of the most conservative voices in the State Senate.

In his one year in office, State Senator Steve O’Ban has led efforts to allow businesses to deny services to gays and lesbians.

He’s worked to allow insurance companies to deny coverage for basic services, like mammograms, diabetes, and autism screenings.

Our state needs leaders who will move our state forward.

Rep. Tami Green has been representing the 28th District for 10 years. She has a strong record of accomplishment in the 28th District, and she is challenging Steve O’Ban for State Senate.

Will you sign our petition and show your support for Tami Green for State Senate?

Tami Green is a trusted nurse and legislative leader known for her integrity, courage, and willingness to bring people together.

In her 10 years in the Legislature, Tami has earned a strong reputation as an experienced leader who is focused on results.

She is a strong advocate for the values we share. She’s worked to strengthen the middle class, protect our environment, expand access to health care, and protect a woman’s right to choose.

With Republicans in power in the State Senate, we haven’t gotten the results that will help Washington’s working families.

This year, the Republican State Senate majority refused to compromise and failed to pass a Transportation or Capitol Budget. This has killed jobs and hurt our middle class.

Steve O’Ban was in step with the State Senate majority the entire way.

We need to elect leaders who are willing to come to the table, get to work, and do what’s best for our communities and working families.

We need Tami Green in the State Senate. Join us now and sign on as a supporter today.

In solidarity,

Jaxon Ravens
Washington State Democrats Chair

Giant’s Baseball featuring the Harvest Moon!


Obzervashunal

baseball Giant's Baseball b&w The roar of the crowd dimmed to a whisper as the Harvest Moon insinuated herself into the night sky- K.L. © 2014

You don’t have to be much of a fan of baseball to still appreciate the awesome sounds and sights which greeted me when I showed up to get a few more harvest moon shots several nights ago. San Francisco baseball like this is a sight to behold with people streaming everywhere wearing their orange and black proudly.

From where I stood (freezing!), every available seat appeared to be filled with happy fans who let themselves be heard every five seconds or so. It was impressive to say the least.

I figured as a tribute to the baseball fans here and everywhere, what with it being ‘the season’, I’d do a Harvest Moon/ Giant’s Baseball combo. If you find yourself visiting the ‘City by the Bay’ over the course…
