Dear Erica and Todd,

Thanks for your help—we’ve received some great applications!

I’m reaching back out with more good news. In addition to our intern positions, we’re now hiring for a number of further positions with People to Elect Tim Ballew II. We would so appreciate if you could also help us circulate these among the students in your programs!

These are really exciting opportunities to join a strong, principled, well-resourced campaign team working right here in Whatcom County. Students shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions!–

Michael Peñuelas

County Councilman Todd Donovan is mentioned also in the above e-mail and what he believes about Republicans appears in this Fourth Corner Article.

The Fourth Corner sources tell us that after learning of this opportunity given to Democrats by WWU… Republican Candidates tried to take advantage of this program as well and received no replies.
