Phase 1 of Windle Campaign Organization Complete

The Windle campaign is in full swing with the submission of the materials for the voters’ pamphlet today to the Washington State Secretary of State. In three short weeks, the Windle campaign has filed for candidacy, set-up its campaign fund raising apparatus, launched its website, and completed all requirements to be on the ballot on August 7th. The focus of Phase 2 will be to structure its outreach throughout the District and continue fund raising. Memorial Day weekend will have Windle all over the District, including Farmers’ markets, Memorial Day observances, barbeques, and other events. Thank you to all of the volunteers and donors who have made this possible.
