In Memory of Our Treasurer, Janet Hume-Schwarz

Janet Hume-Schwarz died March 31 at her residence in La Grande. She served for many years as a volunteer in the UCDCC before becoming its Treasurer. Janet's personal belief and good nature was to serve many public service and non-profit organizations throughout the valley and as such Janet served the UCDCC. Many, who knew Janet, will reflect on her life as one of sharing her professional skills for the benefit of local community organizations and individuals. Many of these organizations continue to proper because of Janet’s guidance based on sound business values. She leaves a legacy of caring and excellence – Janet will be missed.

UNION COUNTY DEMOCRATS CHANGE LOCATION AND MEETING TIME!

Introducing Our New Chairperson

Rebecca Tilley

Introducing Rebecca Tilley, the newly elected Chairperson of the Union County Democratic Central Committee. She is currently a Precinct Committee Person and was active as a local Union County organizer in the Obama for America 2008 and 2012 campaigns. 
 
Reflecting on how she became involved in the democratic process, Rebecca said, “As a 17 year old high school student in 1972, I participated in a mock Democratic Convention in Portland Oregon.  All the states were represented by high schools across Oregon and the moment I stepped into the convention hall, I was hooked. Hearing Senator George McGovern and Representative Patsy Mink speak that night sealed the deal.” 
 
Rebecca is a life long Oregonian and graduate of Southern Oregon State College.  She has been a resident of La Grande since 1995 and is employed as a registered nurse at Grande Ronde Hospital. Rebecca has held positions of leadership as a member of the Board of Directors for the Oregon Nurses Association and member and past chair of the Oregon Nurses Association – GRH Bargaining Unit. Locally she is involved with the Union County Progressives
 
Rebecca looks forward to her new position as Chairperson of the local Democratic Central Committee saying, “the Party represents my core beliefs of equality, fairness and freedom and I’m proud to be a member!”

Democrats Rally at Walden's Office in La Grande

Greg Walden's empty chair

A crowd of 70 people gathered in front of Rep. Greg Walden's office Saturday, February 25th for a Healthcare Rally. An invitation was sent to Walden earlier in the week but no reply was given. One empty chair was provided in case he decided to show up. Families with young children, someone in a wheelchair, retired and working folks were there to show Walden that they won't stand for repealing the ACA or changing Medicare or Medicaid. The rally ended with a show of hands by people involved in the many progressive organizations in the area, including Union County Democrats.  

Heads up RESIST DT and all he stands for!
