Tim Wheeler, October 24, 2015:
The Clallam County Democratic Party held its annual "Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner" last night at the S'Klallam Tribe's, Seven Cedars Casino in Blyn. The "Wheeler Clan" was honored as "Democrats of the Year." We were showered with congratulations including from former Washington Governor, Gary Locke, the guest of honor. Sylvia Hancock, a staunch, progressive Democrat, who had nominated us spoke to the crowd of about 200, hailing us for our energy and enthusiasm. The program booklet features a picture with the following words: "Clallam County Democrats are proud to announce the Wheeler Clan as the 2015 Democrats of the year."
It continues: "Tim and Joyce Wheeler, Steve Vausen and Carlyn Syvanen, and Honeybee Burns, affectionately known as the Wheeler Clan, are the 'gold-standard' doorbelling team in Clallam County! They have consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty to 'get out the vote' for Democratic candidates from local races to State, National and Presidential elections. Come rain or shine, heat or cold, or dark of night, the Wheeler Clan does not give up until the job is done!. Whether it is managing a booth at the Clallam County Fair, organizing and participating in a street corner "wave," bringing their positive enthusiasm and handmade signs to local parades, actively participating on the Executive Board or walking miles and miles to knock on yet another door, the Wheeler Clan is there, always with smiles and contagious enthusiasm for Progressive issues, causes and candidates." On behalf of the family, I thanked Sylvia and the Clallam Democrats. Thanks to Sylvia's leadership and the strong efforts of progressives in our county, President Obama carried Clallam County narrowly in both 2008 and 2012.
