This is Lauren:
She’s 19 years old, and chairwoman of the 25th District Democratics. To her knowledge, that makes her the youngest Democrat in the state to hold a chairperson position. In the last three years, she’s also managed a handful of campaigns.
Adler was at the Puyallup Elks Lodge today, where the 25th District Democrats (and Republicans) were caucusing. She told me she wants to inspire young people.
“Politics isn’t a spectator sport and it’s not an ‘old people’s’ sport,” she said.
She went to the Barack Obama rally in Seattle yesterday and was “blown away” by how young the audience was.
She said she’d promised her district that she’d party-build and help caucus until she lost her voice, and around 2 p.m. she was well on her way.
