“It is with incredible sadness that we must let our Thurston County Democratic family know that Scott Brineman passed away Friday from complications of the flu, at St. Peter’s hospital. Scott was the new Chair of the 2nd LD and he was so excited for the future of our party. He recently retired from the Carpenters, and was a proud labor activist. We were blessed to have him as our friend. We will miss his energy, dedication, smile and laugh. The family has asked for privacy at this time. We ask that you keep his family in your thoughts and hearts through this very rough time. They will know that Scott’s larger Democratic and Labor family will be there for them. We will post information about a celebration of life when more is known.”
– Editor’s Note:
As the Democratic Party’s Area Caucus Coordinator (ACC) for Yelm last Spring, I enjoyed working with and learned much from Scott. His passing is noted with great sadness, as his passion and experience will be sorely missed. Blessings to his family in their loss.
