Benton-Franklin Democrats Richland office grand opening

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- Local Democrats held a grand opening Sunday for their new Benton-Franklin Counties headquarters office.

The office is on the 400 block of Williams Avenue in Richland.

It's a place where Democrats can organize volunteers, have phone banks, register voters and sell campaign signs.

"It's important for democrats to have a place to go, to find where there are other democrats, where the information is about the candidates so they'll know what's going on in the democratic party in Eastern Washington and especially in the Tri-Cities," says Regina Spear, Benton County Democrats Chair.

Democrat community organizers came to the event from all over the region and local candidates were expected to attend after their campaign events.
