The 32nd Legislative District Democrats’ nominating convention is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14, as part of the organization’s monthly meeting, from 7 to 9 pm at the Shoreline American Legion hall, 14521 17th Ave N., Shoreline.

Registration for the meeting is scheduled for 6:30 pm. A program on “Kitchen Table Democracy” is scheduled for 7:15, followed by the actual nominating convention at 8:10 pm.

Elected and appointed 32nd Legislative District Democratic precinct committee officers from precincts throughout the District will choose the Party’s official nominees for the District’s State Senate seat and two State House of Representatives seats.

District Democratic officials have invited incumbent State Sen. Darlene Fairley and Reps.. Maralyn Chase and Ruth Kagi to make pitches for party approval.

Challengers may also make presentations.

The only question is whether there will be a challenge to Fairley. Fairley has long been unpopular with the District organization. Four years ago, the District endorsed another Democrat against Fairley, who was then running for a fourth four-year term.

Since then, the State has switched from a partisan primary to a top-two primary, meaning that the State no longer recognizes party nominees.

Since anyone can file for election with a Democratic-Party preference, State and local Party organizations designate Party nominees.
