The 32nd Leg District Democrats held their nominating convention Wednesday night. Since the retirement announcement of Senator Darlene Fairley, this process was required to select nominees for her senate seat and for the Position #1 Legislative office, because Maralyn Chase is seeking Fairley's seat.
The room was full at the American Legion Hall. The Precinct Committee Officers from all over the district voted overwhelmingly for Rep Chase and former Shoreline Mayor Ryu. There were no other names put forward as nominees, but Shoreline Councilmember Doris McConnell sent a note which was read to the assembled group. Clmbr McConnell stated that she was not able to attend due to another meeting, and was still considering running for the Position #1 Legislative seat that Ryu is now nominated for.
