After the 2004 President Election, the Democratic Party of Washington County wanted to map a strategic plan to focus more locally in turning the county Blue.
Washington County was very much a red county at the time, and Democratic representation in the State Legislature was lacking. After meeting with the Oregon House and Senate Democratic members, the Executive Board and Elected Officials agreed that having a permanent office would make a difference in gaining Democratic seats in Salem. Nearly 100 Grassroots Democrats in Washington County pledged donations to realize this dream. A year later in 2005, the County Party raised enough funds to open our first office.
A Democratic Headquarters in the county became a reality.
With sincere gratitude, we thank our founders that catapulted the beginning of a Blue Horizon to support the Party’s mission to elect Democrats spanning from Special Districts, the County Board, all the way to the State Legislature and beyond.
