Tonight I had a fantastic time at The Q for their Voting Party! Hosted by Dan Savage, famed writer for local Seattle paper The Stranger and founder of the It Gets Better Project. Savage showcased some notable Democrats of Washington state including gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee who I did some phone banking for earlier in September, Bob Ferguson, candidate for Washington state Attorney General, and Congressman Jim McDermott. I took the opportunity to bend their ears about the 2012 elections and the impact they could have on teachers. Don’t forget to make your vote count in the next couple weeks! It’s a major election and opportunity to take part in the democratic process. Happy Election Day!
