Calling All CD 4 Democrat Writers

On Being a Democrat in Central Washington: An Essay Contest
All too often, the majority of voters in Central Washington cast their ballots for Republican candidates and causes. We Democrats must do a better job of communicating our message.

To help shine a brighter light on our party’s principles and priorities, the Fourth Congressional District Democratic Committee is sponsoring an essay contest. Interested participants should answer this question: “What does it mean to be a Democrat in Central Washington?”

Qualifying essays must contain at least 300 words; there is otherwise no word limit, but clarity and brevity will be considered. The three judges will be Norman Luther, of Skamania County; Elaine Smith, of Yakima County; and Barbara Newman, of Kittitas County. Only those residing within the bountiful boundaries of Washington’s unrepresented Fourth Congressional District may enter this contest. Officers of the Fourth Congressional District are disqualified from entering the contest.

All entries must be submitted by midnight, Tuesday, January 12, 2010. Entries should be submitted to George Fearing, Leavy, Schultz, Davis & Fearing, P.S., 2415 W. Falls Avenue, Kennewick, WA 99336, or by e-mail to

Most, if not all, essays will be posted on the Fourth Congressional District Democratic Committee website.
Prizes will be awarded to the authors of the first place essay and the two runners-up.
Get your Democratic fingers punching the keyboard!!
