Jim Baum Will Chair 5th District Democrats

Maple Valley Farmer and building inspector Jim Baum can add another title to his resume, the chair of the 5th District Democrats. The 5th is a sprawling legislative district covering the cities of Sammamish, Issaquah, Renton, Maple Valley, Fall City, Preston, North Bend and points in between. Baum became something of a celebrity last year for organizing the Seattle version of Jon Stewart's "Rally To Restore Sanity".
While Baum's selection to the Chair at the January 19th re-org meeting was by acclamation, there were some vigorous challenges to some of the other elected positions. Baum and the other elected officials will serve 2 year terms.
