Full House in Douglas County

September 22, 2016

Douglas Democrats welcomed candidates for our local school boards, Larry Lippmann, Linda Gilkerson and Mike Kiger. Sara Lafrance, candidate for Board of Regents, joined us, as well as Jennifer Crowe and Jenny Heyman speaking in support of Question 1, Background Checks. Keynote speaker Doug Goodman, Nevada Election Modernization and Reform Act (NEMRA) presented potential options to increase effectiveness of our voting system, to increase voter engagement and decrease friction that stems from political divisiveness.

It will be very busy leading up to elections on November 8, so check back often for updates!

Northern Nevada Democrats presented a strong showing in the recent Carson Valley Days parade. Also joining us for the event were Congressional candidates Chip Evans and Dr. Vance Alm, as well as representatives from Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto’s campaign. Carson Valley enjoyed a morning of perfect walking/riding weather and the positive interactions along the parade route with local residents demonstrated that Democrats are alive and well in Douglas County!

    It is wonderful seeing DCDW and Democrats so strong in Douglas County. I have such fond memories of being one of the founders of DCDW. I think the wind is at our backs in the coming elections. To have a woman senator from Nevada would be a dream come true. Peggy Powell, now living in LasVegas
