Hello fellow Democrats, (TL;DR – I ask for your vote because I have the experience, time, and have the energy to support Joe Biden in the 2024 Presidential Election)

My name is Louis Harris, and I am honored to run, and ask for your vote, as your national delegate for Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election, representing Washington State. As a proud Millennial, African American, and member of the LGBTQIA+ community, my life’s work has been dedicated to amplifying the voices that are often left unheard and bringing forth change to benefit those who are marginalized, disillusioned, and tired of the status quo. I am a respected community leader, and local elected that know how to bring people together to get what needs to get done, inclusively.

I hold bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Sociology from Washington State University, having first attended Everett Community College. This education has provided me with a deep understanding of the societal structures that impact our communities. Over the past decade, I have served in leadership roles across several pivotal organizations in Snohomish County, including the NAACP Snohomish County, The Snohomish County Young Democrats, the YMCA of Snohomish County, and the Communities of Color Coalition. My experiences have not only sharpened my ability to enact meaningful change but have also shown me the power of resilient, community-focused leadership and coalition building.

Additionally, I have worked as a frontline worker at Washington State’s Department of Social and Health Services, being “one of the good ones” to ensure that clients closest to hunger and poverty understand the system and get access to resources to meet their critical daily needs. Most recently, I worked at Washington State’s Department of Commerce as an Outreach and Engagement Specialist assigned in the 1st and 2nd Congressional Districts, ensuring that the organizations serving our communities have the technical support and access to grants they need to thrive. This role made me especially familiar with the 2nd Congressional District, from supporting the recovery of communities affected by the atmospheric river in Whatcom and Skagit Counties to working with those reliant on the ferry system in San Juan County. All of this work has centered on diversity, equity, and inclusion, ensuring that Indigenous, Immigrant, BIPOC, Disabled, and the most in need, have access to the resources that your elected leaders across this state have fought to make available through the state’s legislature.

Politically, my journey began with a campaign for Snohomish County Council in 2019, leading to my subsequent appointment to the Mukilteo City Council in 2020. As the current president of the City Council, I am deeply committed to advancing progressive yet pragmatic policies that enhance the quality of life for all our residents. I have also served as a Precinct Committee Officer for several years.

I am campaigning for National Delegate as party leader elected official, as well as at-large, because I understand the critical stakes of the 2024 Presidential Election and the robust action required to ensure a Democratic victory. My unique blend of grassroots activism and legislative experience is why I am asking for your support to represent our values and interests on the national stage. I have the experience to bring everyone together, to ensure that we have a collective voice to fight back against conservative policies, candidates, and actions that threaten our modern lives.

I am asking for your vote and support to continue fighting for justice, equality, and progress as your delegate in the Democratic National Convention. Together, we can champion the causes that matter most and work tirelessly to uphold the principles that define us as Democrats

Let’s move forward together.

Yours in service,

Louis Harris
