Secretary -TreasurerŐs Report
Leonard reported on the Everett 4th of July parade and the labor booths at the Mill Creek Festival and Festival of the River in Arlington. He added that last year we set a record for Solidarity Night at the AquaSox with 1403 attending and this year we topped that with 1726 union members attending.

Leonard reported that the executive Board had approved adding Island County to our Charter. He added that it was brought to his attention that Island County was not listed in the Jurisdiction of any Labor Council and it only made sense for Snohomish and Island to work together. To make this happen it needed to be voted upon by the delegates so before them was a motion and a second coming from the Executive Board to add Island County to our Constitution, Leonard reported that this would have to be approved by the AFL-CIO after a vote by the delegates. A vote was held to add Island County and it passed unanimously.
Jake Morgan, IBEW 77: announced that their local had endorsed Sid Logan for Snohomish County PUD Commissioner District 1.

A motion and second was made to endorse Liz Vogeli for Everett City Council. The motion will be voted on at our next delegates meeting.
