Louise Oliverio, who has been Thurston County Democrats’ Precinct Committee Officer Proxy (PCO Proxy) in Yelm for Tim Lancaster over the last year, was recently confirmed as Yelm’s newest PCO when the boundary lines for Precincts in the area were changed last month, and Tim Lancaster found himself no longer a resident within the boundary of Precinct 702 #2.
Louise Oliverio is a dynamic local author, mother of 3, and grandmother of 4. She has lived in the Yelm area for 18 years.
Louise has been an involved political action volunteer for years in both Yelm City and Thurston County, giving her time to support the Nisqually Land Trust, and attend and participate in the Thurston County Democrats’ various events, including Lakefair Burger Booth, in addition to her volunteer work and support of former Candidate JeanMarie Christenson in her ’06 campaign for State Representative.
Some of Louise’s primary duties as PCO will include:
– hold precinct caucuses at certain selected times for the purpose of adopting resolutions and selecting delegates to legislative,
– county and state conventions,
– encourage the voters in her Precinct to register,
– getting the voters out in the Yelm area for both the ’07 and ’08 voting seasons,
– and support local Democratic candidates win their elections.
In that regard, expect to be hearing from Louise with the continuing call to let your voice be heard. Louise intends to hold local get-together’s to give all who wish a chance to voice their wants and needs as it relates to the Democratic Party issues and policies. This will also help her to get to know her Precinct neighbors, and helps to make sure everyone is registered to vote in Precinct 702 #2, and an opportunity to participate and let their voices heard.
Congratulations on your appointment, Louise.
I, along with the Thurston County Democrats applaud your confirmation,
and look forward to working with you as we go forward into the ’07 and ’08 election cycles.
1st Vice Chair, LD2
