Leavenworth and Cashmere Caucus
Leavenworth and Cashmere residents will be caucusing this Saturday like the rest of the state to decide who will run as our presidential candidates for 2008.
I’m a long time political junkie having been raised in Olympia and gone to campaign events since I was about 6. When I was in high school, I even went down to the Capitol to heckle Ross Perot. However, this weekend will be my first caucus. In years past, the primaries and caucuses have been too little, too late for us in Washington State. This year, with tight races, we count.
In Leavenworth – The Democrats are meeting at Icicle River Middle School on Titus Road at 1 pm. The Republicans are meeting at the Leavenworth Fire Station on the Chumstick Highway (across from Cascade High School) at 12:30.
The Republicans are also caucusing near Lake Wenatchee at 12801 Chiwawa Loop Road and for folks in Peshastin or Dryden at 2592 Saunders Road.
In Cashmere – The Democrats are caucusing at the Cashmere City Hall (in downtown Cashmere, just off of Cottage Ave.) again at 1 pm. The Republicans are meeting a block away at Cashmere Valley Bank at 12:30.
