On Jan. 16, Clallam County Democrats kicked off their 2019 membership drive with a goal of 500 members.

The drive’s theme, “Our Strength is in Shared Values,” reflects the organization’s support of community members’ shared needs including healthcare, family wage jobs, affordable housing, accessible childcare, and clean air and water, the group said in a press release.

Annual dues are $20 for individuals those aged 26 and older, and $5 for younger than 27. Funds help support candidates, issues and initiatives promoting the membership’s common values and goals, Clallam Democrats said.
