San Juan Democrats opening headquarters on Fourth of July

The San Juan County Democrats are opening a headquarters, which will be known as "Democracy Corner," on July 4 right after the parade.

The headquarters, located at 28 N. First St., is the former site of Neil's Images and Bison Gallery. Hours will be noon to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

(The Democrats will vacate the office July 18-20 to accommodate the Lummi Arts Festival, which is hosted in part by Friday Harbor House, owner of the building. The Democrats will return to the building after the festival.)

The office, run entirely through volunteer efforts, is designed to be a place to pick up campaign material, talk politics, watch debates and plan efforts for the fall campaign season.

"Those wishing to get involved should drop in to Democracy Corner after July 4," Sarah Crosby said.
