Head of King County Democrats steps down amid allegations

Thursday, April 19, 2018

By Diane Hettrick

Just ahead of a scheduled meeting of all King County Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs), the chair of the King County Democrats has resigned his position as chair.

A contingent of members had filed formal complaints against the chair, Bailey Strober, 29, claiming financial overspending and creating a hostile work environment for employees.

Strober vigorously denied the charges.

The Board appointed an independent investigator, who reported that the complaints had validity.

Strober, who has been in the job for 16 months, scheduled a series of open meetings around the county to share his side of the story.

The King County Democratic Central Committee scheduled a meeting of PCOs to consider removing the chair. The meeting was scheduled for Sunday, April 15, 2018.

Chair Stober tendered his resignation effective at noon on Saturday, April 14th, and the KCDCC Executive Board accepted it by vote. All the meetings on the topic were cancelled.

Sharon Mast was appointed as King County interim chair. She will be leading the Sunday, April 22nd King County Democrats 2018 Convention.

Doors open at Noon, starts at 1pm at the IAM Machinists Hall in South Park, 9125 15th Place S, Seattle, WA 98108.
